Q: Intake air temperature sensor

asked by on

I have a replacement IAT sensor and can't seem to find its location on the vehicle

My car has 174963 miles.

You will need to look at the wiring connector of the mass air flow (MAF) sensor. If six wires are being used in connector then you IAT is incorporated into the MAF. If there is only four wires in MAF connector then look in the inlet air tube about half way between throttle body and air cleaner. If incorporated into the MAF and you have IAT problems then replace MAF sensor.
