It is an air duct and will be a dealer or salvage yard item.

It's an air duct tube. If you want one that is exactly like the one you currently have in your car you will have to get it from the dealer. If you don't care if it's exact, you can get one that you bend to fit from AutoZone for around $20. Check it out

Where is intake,mafsensor,iac valve,andthe idle stabilizer valve located

Assuming it is a 4-cyl, the intake is the large tube connecting the air cleaner housing to the intake manifold, which is the metal body behind and above the top of the engine. See here, p2, p40. p168

The Mass Air Flow sensor if fitted (not all Camrys had one that early) is fitted in the air intake just after the air cleaner and before the throttle body.
If you mean the Manifold Air Pressure sensor (different) that sits on the firewall flange behind the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the air intake chamber, p46
The Idle Air Control Valve is on the throttle body, see p168 and p208.

I don't know of an Idle Stabilizer Valve by that name on this engine, I think it is an alternative name for the IAC valve.

How to connect vacuum hose from/to air filter - Camry 2003

Usually you wouldn't connect a vacuum hose to the air filter, but if its a DIY job your after you would need to get the male connectors and some other hardware to do a custom job (drilling required) otherwise to have the same effect you could just connect a vacuum hose to the Intake Manifold or throttle body.

The Intake manifold usually has some spare slots for small vacuum hoses.

To locate follow the air filter box tube back to the throttle body, the throttle body, the intake is directly off this and connects to the engine. see diagram

Picture and location of mass air flow nsenser

Hello ischeyenne: My name is Roger and I will help you. The picture of the mass air flo sensor is larger then i am allowed to send. I can tell you that if you have a 4.0 or a 5.0 engine the location is the same. Locate the air filter cover. Follow the snorkel back to the intake manifold. The mass air flo sensor will be inthe tube between the air filter housing and the end of the tube that goes to the intake. Will be at the air cleaner end. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

    Is there any advise to improve gas efficient, what about replace air filter hose system

    NO NO NO, to replacing the air filter system. There is a lot miss leading information as to the "Cold air intake systems" We have tested and shown our clients that not very many work, and most are all "HYPE"! We have used temp reading equipment and monitored the temp from the air cleaner to the intake manifold. We found the stock equip was far cooler (60 DEGREES) than the "cold air systems" THEY WERE USING OR WANTING TO USE. The main reason for this, they where not properly insulating the tube. The cold air tube was absorbing the HOT air from under the hood, and the outside temp flowing through it was not cooling it off, like the factory one does. If done properly, the temp would be much cooler, but there is no aftermarket companys that send the insulation package with the cold air system. We have used insulation from a local heating/air condition company that they use on duct work. This made a significant difference in temp from the outside air to the throttle body, and made it a REAL COLD AIR SYSTEM. Keep the tires properly inflated, get a 4 wheel alignment to insure the tires are rolling straight and true, keep the filters clean, switch to a synthetic oil, wax the exterior of the vehicle for less wind resistance,( ever seen a high speed car dirty?) push on the gas pedal when taking off, and letting the vehicle coast down when coming to stop, using less brakes. Hope this help you

    Trying to find the name of this hose or tube that is connected by the air filter and goes across the engine and reconnets by the brake fluid resevoir

    The hose you are talking about might be a vacuum hose. A vacuum hose usually connects from somewhere near the air filter like on the intake manifold and to the brake assist device. If the tube is rubber and can be disconnected at the brake you can check to see if that is what it is by placing your thumb over the open end instead of the brake assist while the engine is idleing. If it is a vacuum hose then you will be able to feel the suction of the intake system. With the vacuum hose open to the air the engine will probably idle poorly. I hope this helps.

    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!

    Coolant leak

    This engine has a plastic intake, jsut inside of the throttle body is a tube that comes from the EGR. It will burn through the plastic into a coolant passage located inside of the intake. You will need to replace the intake manifold and if you want there is a revised lower intake manifold with a slightly smaller diameter tube to prevent future burn through that will prevent a reoccurance. However, it is a costly repair for what is a infrequent failure. I suggest just replacing the upper intake manifold. They are now available through the aftermarket.
