Description and operation
Description

Intake Air Temperature Sensor (IATS) is included inside Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor and detects the intake air temperature.

To calculate precise air quantity, correction of the air temperature is needed because air density varies according to the temperature. So the ECM uses not only MAPS signal but also IATS signal. This sensor has a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) Thermister and it's resistance changes in reverse proportion to the temperature.

Removal & Installation
1.

Turn the ignition switch OFF and disconnect the battery negative (-) terminal.

2.

Disconnect the manifold absolute pressure sensor connector (A).

3.

Remove the sensor (B) from the Intake manifold by loosening the mounting bolts.

Intake air temperature sensor mounting bolt:

9.8 - 11.8 N·m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf·m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb·ft)

4.

Install in the reverse order of removal.

  

Tighten the component with the specified torques.

Note that internal damage may occur when the component is dropped. If the component has been dropped, if it is damaged inspect before installing.

Insert the sensor in the installation hole and be careful not to damage.
