05 taurus orifice tube location

  • To replace the orifice tube ---
  1. Remove the washer and overflow bottle. The high side service port is on a pipe about eight inches long to make it easier for service. The fitting and orifice tube are near this pipe. The fitting is covered with a protective rubber cover that makes it hard to see the fitting.
  2. Push the cover back.
  3. Disconnect the fitting.
  4. Replace the orifice tube.
  5. Lubricate the new o-ring and torque the fitting to 18 foot pounds.
  • Ford says to use a special too to get the orifice tube out of the hose. I find needle nose pliers gets the job done real well unless it is really stuck then use the tool.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Where is the orifice located?

An orifice is located on every part produced that carries air, fuel, water and gases.
Generally when someone askls about an orifice they are speaking of the orifice tube, which is a removal screen type air conditioning filter in the high pressure liquid side of the a/c line, It filters the liquid refrigerant and meters the liquid entering the evap. coil which causes a drop in pressure and causes the liquid to boil and absorb heat from the interior of the car and transfer it to the atmosphere outside. If you are not knowledgeable of a/c work and the how to's of charging the system, I would recommend leaving the repair/replacement up to an a/c tech.
High pressure freon can cause injury and be a hazard to the atmospere if left to spend into the air.
Hope this helps.
Happy Motoring!!
