The IAT sensor is located on the back side of the intake manifold, nearest the firewall, between the throttle cable mount and the stainless steel grounding cable on the back of the engine.Open the glove compartment. There are two locks located on the right and left walls. Unlock them. It will allow the compartment to go down. You are going to see the filter in front of you in a socket. thanks.

Making whistle noise on off on run and stopping.


There are basically two types of whistle noises.

* Whistle when you get more gas (increase RPM, put gas pedal, sometimes just idling but louder when you put more gas)
This usually intake-side leak.
Intake manifold itself, intake manifold gasket (most likely), even airfilter housing, Airflow meter housing (connector), anything where air goes to engine.
usually engine get rough or unstable idle when intake leak occur.
Engine knocking or pinging may feel.

* Whistle when you decrease RPM (engine brake, reduce speed, sometimes just idling but louder when it dropping RPM)
This usually Vacuum-side leak.
There are many vacuum hoses in engine room. even inside of cabin (heater control, etc)
Try to spot where it coming from.
Vacuum also connected to Brake servo, heater control and spark timing.

Put metal or plastic pipe (small PVC pipe will work fine) to one of your ear then isolate source of noise and find where it come from.

Where is the air conditioner (cabin) air filter


2008 - 2012 models should have the access panel behind the glove box if the van is equipped with a filter. Not all models have a filter.
You drop the glove box down by disconnecting the support straps.

When it rains water is coming in the cabin of the car through the dash on the front passengers side. What could be the cause and fix?


There is a drain on the fire wall just below the windshield. It is covered by a small rubber flap. Leaves and debris collect in the drain and plug it up.
If you clean out the drain, remove the screen,( it is the air intake for the a/c system) there are about 7 bolts in total to remove it. When the screen is off, put some silicone around the edge where the gasket is and replace the screen. This should stop the leak. Hope this helps!

Will not defrost , interior is humid(has heat), but when car shuts off interior windows freeze and must scrap ice off inside glass to see. problem is accumulative....more we drive the worse it gets


Could a symptom of 3 or more problems: (1) Sounds like you have got the cabin air intake set to "recirculate" air from within the cabin. Once the car is warmed up in cold weather you need to move the cabin air intake control so that it draws air in from outside the vehicle. Having the air intake set to "recirculate" with the windows closed means that the occupants' breath causes the windows to mist up - this gets worse the longer the car is driven, and this is exactly the problem you're experiencing. (2) If, however, the air intake is actually set correctly, then the air vents would appear to be blocked, either with debris such as leaves, or snow or ice (this would have the same effect as having the heating controls set to recirculate cabin air. (3) There is a possibility that the cabin air filter (if one is fitted) is blocked - replacement or removal should solve the problem.

2 inches of water every time it rains only on my passenger side


Water is probably from the fresh air intake located just under the right plastic cowl (lower windshield reveal molding). We see this often in our shop. To access the fresh air intake, remove the right windshield wiper and then remove the screws fastening the cowl to the car body. Remove the right cowl. Just above the rectangle shaped fresh air intake (& cabin filter) should be a bulb shaped strip (approx 12" long). All too often, this strip comes off and no longer diverts water. Glue the strip back onto the firewall above the fresh air intake using weatherstrip adhesive. Reattach parts that you removed and now the water should be diverted to either (or both) side(s) of the cabin filter. Good luck

My girlfriend has a 2004 Vibe AWD Recently we have noticed a smell coming from the vents like an aniaml got in the air system. However i cannot find the cabon filter "if it exsists" My 2008 vue has one....


The cabin air filter is behind the glove box usually. If you live some where that there is a lot of small ground animals, like in CA, we have damn ground squirrels. Check under the main air filter in the motor bay too, I found a dead mouse in one so I would check both.

Auto zone sells stuff that you can buy if its just mold in the vent housings and in the air ducts. you have yo run the heater on hot and high to ge the moisture out then after you run it for 15-20 min spray the mildew killer in to it. .....Best of Irish luck to you on that one, it took me a month to find that mouse.

Air conditioning system musty smell when used


There should be a cabin filter. Call the parts store to see if they stock one for your car in particular.

Cabin filters are located in stream of the outside air flowing in. I know on a '99 Galant, you just had to take out the glove box, loosen two screws, and out she slid.

It'll be right near the blower motor, above the passenger's foot rest, behind the glove box. Simple hand tools will do it.

Be careful when pulling it out, as it may have leaves and acorns or fur all over it. Simply slide in the new filter and you're done.

You'll be surprised at how much better it'll smell, and how much harder your A/C and heat will blow without the constriction of a dirty filter.

Most cars have the cabin filters behind the glove box, but if not there, then they'll have them under the hood, on the firewall, on the passenger side. Usually inside a small black plastic box.

If your car DOESN"T have a cabin filter, then the musty smell is stuff that is sitting in the heat/ AC system. You can try spraying pine sol or Febreeze down the air intake hole for the system. Mind you, this is not the same as the air intake for your cars engine!

The air intake for the cabin filter will be on the passenger side, under the hood, most likely under a plastic cowling of sorts.

Good luck!

95 nissan quest - strong smell of exhaust in the cabin area


The exhaust leak is almost always broken studs on the exhaust manifolds. It makes a tick noise when cold and usually goes away when the engine warms up. After a year or so, the noise doesn't go away.

Your heater-a/c air intake is at the base of the windshield through the screen on the passenger side. WHen the exhaust leaks from the manifold, the exhaust gas gets sucked into the air intake.
You can put the heater in recirc mode and it will draw air in from inside the car instead of though the outside air intake. You can't leave it in recirc for long in winter or your car will get ice or fogging on the windows from too much humidity. Take it off recirc after 10 minutes.
