The sensor you have described is the radiator coolant temp sensor, the one you want (that often becomes faulty) is located directly at the back of the engine on a pipe between the engine and the bulk head. It is very tight to get to. The sensor is usually green or black, you will need to use a very long flat blade screw driver to remove the 'c' shaped clip (I think its the same clip you would of seen on the rad) I reccommend you try and get a spare clip as they can be easily dropped! With the clip out you can ease the sensor up and out, its prob easier to leave the connector on untill removed. Replace the seal if possible. When refitting the new sensor ease it in gently to avoid damaging and put the clip in which ever way is easier (if i remember correctly the clip can go back in the other side to which it came out- this way is much easier!) Hope this helps.
Avoid doing it when the cars hot, and even if its warm release the pressure by undoing the coolant bottle cap carefully. You shouldnt lose too much coolant when changing sensor. Let me know if you want anymore info.

SOURCE: crank sensor location

Look around the bottom of cylinder block. Or near where the flywheel is to, because the crank angle sensor works from missing teeth or magnets on the flywheel or a cog/wheel fixed to the crankshaft.Hope this helps

Follow the air duct from the air filter towards the engine. It will have wires coming from it. It will look similar to this.

Where is iat sensor located on 2006 tpyota tacoma 4,ol ?

Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor are combined into a single assembly which is called Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. This MAF sensor is located on the air filter box near air filter hose, and is connected with a five wire connector. You cannot replace the IAT sensor alone. Instead a MAF sensor is replaced altogether.

This is the 2001-2012 Toyota Tacoma wiring diagram, Toyota Tacoma IAT (Intake Air Temperature) Sensor Location and the Toyota Tacoma MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor Location, also included is a pinout of the sensor. You are likely installing a performance chip or a cold air intake kit for increased HP (Horsepower). You will want to be sure to disconnect the car battery before adding performance products.

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.

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!
