    Orifice tube ? Where?

    Guys, on our cars 98 3100 lumina, where is the orifice tube located at? I just got back from the shop abd was quoted possibly $300 dollars just to crack the system and to pull the orifice tube, he'll I'd rather take a whack at it since I have the gauges and the 134a for it, might even replace the condensor while I'm at it, while the system is open.

    Its more accurately under the brake master cylinder, and there should be only one line fitting you can open under there. I believe one of the lines is smaller as well. You'll be looking for the bigger one.
