I had to find and fix leak. It was the 9ft. suction hose going to rear evaporator. Replaced accumulator, front evaporator and added 3oz. of pag 150.Vaccumed system for 11/2 hrs. than charged with 64oz. of r134. Rear vent blows 40F. Front vent is 60-65F. I did not change the orfice tube.Should the front air be at least the same temperature as rear air? Could the orfice tube be causing the problem?

The orifice tube is the primary filter in the system. It is also the quick check for debris in the system, and the first part I look at after opening a CCOT system.
Yes, it is probably part of the performance issue. The other thing I find on 5.7 suburbans is dead fan clutches. If the system cools ok at 60 mph, and stinks in traffic the clutch is dead.

Thanks for your advice. I will check the fan clutch and go from there.
