Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I need to clean out or change the orifice tube on my 2000 Jeep Cherokee

About two years ago I had everything related to the A/C system under the hood replaced. It worked great for a few months but this year, even though it is fully charged, it is only blowing slightly cool air. I suspect it is the orifice/expansion tube and want to know if I can change it out myself or reair it.

Rather then guessing an just replacing parts , have a qualified repair shop hook up A/C manifold gauges an check the system . Can tell you what's wrong in just min.
(it is only blowing slightly cool air. I suspect it is the orifice/expansion tube and want to know if I can change it out myself or reair it.)
Don't suspect , that's guessing . test don't guess . Are the A/C pipes going in through the fire wall cold ,have ice on them when A/C is on ?

SOURCE: a/c compressor clutch will not engage

There is a compressor relay "fuse" under the hood (in the fuse compartment). It is black and has a "diode" symbol on it. I replaced mine and all was well. Good luck.

SOURCE: Air Conditioner works intermittently

It could be your low pressure cycle switch is going bad. Check the connection to the switch and it's is located on the A/C Accumulator. The other thing to check is the A/C relay and that is located in the glove box. There is a panel in the glove box that say's relay, there is three relays in there and one of the out side relay's out of the three is the A/C. can not remember which one it is. The middle relay is the fuel pump and the other one is the third break light. Switch the two out side relays and see if your A/C get's better. the other thing too is if the R134a is just a little low, and needs to be topped off. Good luck and hope this helps. if your going to try to recharge the A/C system your self, keep in mind not to over charge.

Ac not cold cool but not cold


Have you recently added R-19 refrigerant to your Jeep? The 1989 model base requires R-19 Freon, not the newer R-134A designed for the newer cars...Has your stock system been re-fitted for the new R-134A refrigerant? If cool but not cold, the system could be low...or need a clean/new orifice tube...Try for a free inspection in your area...

Why dose my 2000 jeep cherokee have a rough idle but seems to run good at freeway crusing speed just bought the vehicle last owner thinks it has a low cylinder compression


My wife's 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee has had the same problem what I did was take the air intake tube off and cleaned the carbon build up around the air intake valve. I used carbrator spray and a soft cloth to clean this build up off. Make sure to change your air filter and clean out any debris in the air filter box and other air intake tube. If this doesn't help check the Jeep website for information about some electrical module that when it's bad can causes this problem.

A/C problem with 99 Jeep GC Laredo


If the compressor is running and the lines are getting cold that leaves the evaorator having a block, don't recall if that year has the orifice tube or not. In any case it is going to require opening the systems cleaning the lines and the oriffice then refilling the system. That means a vacuum pump and refriedgerant oil and the associated guages and freon. Live on the Gulf coast and you are right we do get hot down here!
