Broken line on radiator?

Asked by May 01, 2015 at 02:15 PM about the 1997 Pontiac Grand Am 2 Dr GT Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got a used car off of Craig's list
and wanted to know what this part
was called. It's located right at the
front left of my car behind the
bumper. My friend told me it's not
the radiator but it front of it and I
don't know what it is. If I knew the
name I can easily just get he part
online and put it on myself. Thanks.
Here's a picture.

Maybe the line to the A/C condenser, if that's where it leads. Just a guess, and it looks either broken or badly repaired Anybody else want to have a look, here it is

Hi Fordnut. I agree. Looks like a high pressure refrigerant line going to or from the air conditioning condenser. Once repaired (correctly) the accumulator will have to be replaced, the system pulled down into a vacuum, swept, then recharged. Depending on how bad the system is the orifice tube should be replaced as well. HTH. -Jim
