Toyota Pickup expansion valve

macs_5 on Mon June 22, 2009 11:43 PM User is offline

Year: 88
Make: Toyota
Model: RN4 4x4
Engine Size: 22 RE
Refrigerant Type: R134 Conv.
Ambient Temp: 100
Pressure Low: 0
Pressure High: 0
Country of Origin: Japan

Interesting problem, the replacement aftermarket expansion valve pn 758616 has two different size nipples for the evap. One is the correct size for the 14mm line, but the fitting for the low pressure line is wrong (larger) and I am mystified by how something this basic could be wrong? I took a ND expansion valve out with two numbers on the head, one is ND12G04 and the other is 047500-0640. Can anyone give me some specs on this particular expansion valve? OR has anyone run into this problem and what did it take to get the correct expansion valve? Thanks.

The automotive aftermarket can be a blessing - or a curse. Companies like four-squeezin's reduce their inventory by providing a generic valve with a goofy adaptor on it like this:
Recent thread regarding Toyota TXV that was not right

You can contact the site sponsor - AMA and they should be able to provide the right valve. If that is a 4-Runner, I seem to recall the TXV is about 10 bucks from AMA.
