2001 Ford Escape Q&A
2001 Ford Escape Question: Where is the expansion valve located on a 2001 Ford escape V6?
Your car is a orfice tube type system. It does not have a mechanical exspansion vlave. The orfice tube is located in the liquid line running from condensor to bottom tube entering evaporator. Your symptom could indicate a low charge,debri blocked orfice, or a failed compressor. Proper charge is critical. We always start diagnoses by recovering all refrigerant from the system then recharging with the exact specified charge to verify its correct before condeming and parts of the system. - milesauto
