Replace Your Car's AC Thermal Expansion Valve or Orifice Tube

Your car or truck's AC system is under extreme pressure and the thermal expansion valve or orifice tube monitors the amount of pressure and the temperature of your A/C system. It calculates the precise amount of refrigerant that can safely go into the evaporator. A failing expansion valve or orifice tube often causes a vehicle's air conditioner to blow hot air.

Replace or Repair

  • Expansion Valves: Too much refrigerant causes your evaporator to get too cold whereas too little refrigerant would result in inadequate cooling. The expansion valve is a complex valve that regulates refrigerant flow. This process of metering the refrigerant adjusts the flow according to the temperature of the refrigerant in the evaporator coil. Talk to one of the pro mechanics at Bayside Auto Works, as this part can be replaced on its own and does not require the entire replacement of the AC assembly.
  • Orifice Tubes: Unlike the expansion valve, the orifice tube is a simple fixed device with no moving parts. It therefore cannot vary the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator, but rather causes a permanent restriction in the system. However, like the expansion valve the orifice tube regulates refrigerant flow through the system and filters debris which may come through in its screen. Often fixing a "bad orifice tube" requires replacing the entire evaporator assembly.

    Went to Bayside today for an oil change and waited for the service to be completed. I was amazed and impressed how Chris (who was sick) handled the phone, customers, and service staff all the while being fast and pleasant. My service was done on time and the bill was as estimated. I will return and recommend.

    When visiting family and friends in Spring Hill my car started having some serious issues. Knowing that I had well over 1,000 miles to get it back home to Ohio, I had to have it repaired. Worried that because I was from out of town that I would possibly have problems. I went to Bayside on the recommendation of a family member in Spring Hill. Greg and his staff looked the car over, found the problem and fixed it. The car runs great, and they did not overinflate the charges like I have had done to me before. I drove the car home, there were NO problems, the work was quality work and Greg and his staff are simply awesome! THANK YOU~

    Very impressed with the service. They are very friendly and professional. I am familiar with vehicle repair and they took me to the repair area and showed everything that needed attention and it was right on. They got my 2004 Taurus with 175k miles on it running and most important stopping like new. Highly recommended.

    I don't normally write reviews, but I felt I had to write one for this business. Overall, my experience there was a pleasure...from Karen, the receptionist to the owner who was always available to answer questions . My car had some A/C problems and was diagnosed and fixed and I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg. They have a new customer now...I will trust them to make repairs at a fair price...all they while being courteous and professional.

    I kept hearing about Bayside Auto Works from 99.9 radio that I always listen to. I needed my car checked and an oil change. They were courteous, professional, even rotated my tires, replaced my lights in my tag that were our all for a very reasonable price. I will refer others to Bayside and be doing business with them from now on. You just don't find businesses and auto care services like this anymore. Thanks Bayside.
