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.

I have a 2006 nissan altima 2.5s I received a code for iat sensor. Now when I went to check for the part online it keeps coming up cam sensor ? Can this be right ?

IAT sensor is Intake Air Temperature sensor and goes in the air intake tubing. Don't know why it would tell you CAM sensor.

Wher is the IAT?

the iat sensor is located in the fresh air duct connected to the air filter in front of the fuse/relay control panel. to remove the iat sensor, renive the air filter cover and using a pair of wire cutters remove the small steel band holding the sensor in place. then by pulling on sensor it will come out. when replaceing sensor be sure to install new metal ring on new sensor to secure it in place.
