It is small and round (2 wire connector) and located either in the flexiable air intake hose to the engine or in the engine air filter housing.

Location of maf sensor in 2005 Nissan Altima

It's a MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor. Go to Checker, or NAPA, or PEP Boys and look at the replacement part - then you can find it under the hood. Probably mounted on the firewall. First check visually for a vacuum hose that may have fallen off (or split) on or near the MAP sensor.

Iat sensor location for a 2002 nissan frontier?

Depending on what size engine you have, it could be on the air filter housing,or somewhere along the intake tube that goes to the throttle body. It's round in shape and has 1 or 2 wires connected to it.Without the size of the engine, I can't tell you exactly where it is.
