Your IAT sensor is going to be on the intake tube.
the connector you should see is a oval two wire connector. (the normal for chevys) the other connector going to the intake tube is the mass air flow, these usually have 4-6 wires.
I can't help you with your govenor problem

Getting Code p0113 which causes the car to hesitate and also shift hard. 2.2L ecotec motor.


I would check a sensor called the mass air flow sensor its located in the intake stream before the air gets to the intake air temperature .
Its baslcly the first sensor the computer use's to control the vehicle .
It is expensive how ever some times it can be cleaned you can by mass air flow sensor cleaner for about 10 bucks dosn't always work but if it is bad t5heir is a huge recore for it like 80 ti 100 dollars so don't through it away.

Where is the iat sensor located on a 2011 dodge challenger 3.6 liter engine


The intake air temperature (IAT) sensor is located on the intake tube. Simply lift up on the engine cover to remove the cover. Near the front of the engine on the intake air tube will be a small 2 wire sensor, this is the IAT. Lift the release tab and rotate 1/4 turn to the left to remove it.

Where is the iat sensor located on a 1999 chevy cavalier 4cyl


The Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor determines the air temperature inside the intake manifold. Resistance changes in response to the ambient air temperature. The sensor has a negative temperature coefficient. As the temperature of the sensor rises the resistance across the sensor decreases. This provides a signal to the PCM indicating the temperature of the incoming air charge. This sensor helps the PCM to determine spark timing and air/fuel ratio. Information from this sensor is added to the pressure sensor information to calculate the air mass being sent to the cylinders. The IAT is a two wire sensor, a 5-volt reference signal is sent to the sensor and the signal return is based upon the change in the measured resistance due to temperature.

Code came back as iat sensor reading high


IAT stands for Air Intake Temperature Sensor and it is located in the intake tube coming from the air filter box tot he engine. Easiest way to find it is look at the top of your engine where it says 2200. Coming right out of that manifold is a black ribbed tube about the size of a baseball to softball. It should be going towards the direction on the front drivers side. on the back side of that tube, about 4 inches away from the intake manifold (the things that says 2200) is a plug with wires. That is your IAT Sensor. If it is unplugged, plug it back in. Otherwise unplug it and replace it. Make sure to disconnect the battery while you do this so the computer resets itself after the new one is installed. Thanks and please don't forget to rate!

The IAT sensor is most of the time located along the intake tube right after Between the throttle body and MAP sensor. Just follow your air intake tube from your air filter housing to the Throttle body.
Good luck.

DTC Code of a 1404 , and also a IAT High input malfunction


sounds like the IAT is disconnected, it is either in the flex hose from the air cleaner to the engine or in the air filter housing, on my GM product car it is in the air intake hose, it is small and has a 2 wire connector to it, just pushes and pulls in and out of the flexible air intake hose.
