A/C went out like a light!

Asked by Aug 25, 2014 at 01:46 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo LS Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife's 08 Aveo had super cold A/C.  Then like a light switch it went out.  I put the gauges on it and the low side is 90-100psi and the high side is 185-190psi.  With 90psi more on the high side I don't think that it's the compressor.  What else could it be?  Scottykilmer.com told me it was the orifice tube or the compressor.  But I can't find a replacement orifice tube online so I'm inclined to think that it doesn't have one.  Any thoughts?

It probably is an orifice because the low side is WAY too high and the R134 is not getting through. The low side should only be 25-45psi max. Hold on while I find a diagram
