SOURCE: cant find the iat sensor on 91 s10

The IAT or MAT sensor (as equipped), is a thermistor (resistor which changes value based on temperature) mounted either in the air intake snorkel or the manifold (depending on the application).

SOURCE: need location of the erg sensor 2000 ford ranger

The egr valve has two sensors. One is an EGR position sensor which is physically attached to the EGR valve. The other sensor is the DPFE (Delta Pressure Feedback EGR) sensor, commonly called the EGR pressure sensor. It's location varies depending on the engine you have. You can fine this sensor by following the vacuum hose on the EGR valve. It will be with in inches of the EGR valve. The sensor will be black (plastic) or silver (metal), have two or three vacuum ports and an electrical connection on it.

The vacuum pressure sensor is a high failure item on fords. Any Ford parts department will have one in stock, as well as some aftermarket parts stores.

The new sensor may not look exactly the same as the old part, but will have all the hook ups as the old one. You may also need to replace the vacuum hose to the sensor as well

Yes. That is exactly it. The Air Intake Temp Sensor is built into the Mass Air Flow Sensor on the Air Filter Box. Below is a picture...
I personally have not connected one of these Chips to a Tahoe...What I can provide you with, is the Connector Diagram so you know exactly what Wires you need to Splice in to. See below...
I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesisitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader.

SOURCE: installing chip and want to double check wiring. Need to find IAT/MAF sensor diagram for 2003 Ford Ranger

Save your money, the chip is a ohm resistor at Radio Shack for under $2.00. It splices in to you IAT wire harness located at the intake tube between the air filter housing and throttle body.
Problem with this system is, that you can not adjust anything and have to run a constant 91 octane just to make sure you do not have a Detonation. The ECM will catch the Detonation from the knock sensor and compensate for it by retarding the timing which in turn lose of HP till next start up.
If you like and don't mind the check engine light on once and awhile, you can do the same by just disconnecting the IAT wire harness which give the ECM a 0 resistance thinking it's -20 out side and turn the timing up and lengths the injector pules.
When i was running a Nitro in the Toy before i sold it, i had installed a 10K ohm Potentiometer which you can buy at radio shack for under $5.00 i believe, I just spliced it in to the IAC wire harness so if i wanted to play with the Nitro I'ld turn the resistor up making the engine think it's 185 degrees F and would ****** the timing so i would not hurt the engine. But if i wanted to get more timing i would just turn the knob to drop the resistance to get more time since the engine thinks it's -20 out side.
Hope this helps. Keep me posted if you need more info. Best thing is to do a dyno tune and you can change everything right down to the Shift points.

Yeah its a "master switch" or something like that.
Talk to a trustworthy family owned mechanic and just ask to "pick his brain" and make sure you talk to the owner. Just ask about a master switch being out.

Assuming you replaced the bulbs, checked the fuse .. See owners manual first to trouble shoot might be something simple. Or ask you a mechanic that isn't too busy.

Cost change lifters

I'm sorry, but that's a question best left for a mechanic. No one can really answer that for you. Your area, the motor and model of your durango are all variables taken into account at price time. No one can give you that answer here.

Call several shops, including a Dodge dealer. Pick the one you favor and, take a few minutes to contact the Better Business Bureau and find out if the business is a BBB member and is deemed "reputable".

Good luck.

Need a code for bose premium 2100 acura Lengend '95

The security code should be in your owners manual. If you do not have the original owners manual, Take radio out & write the model and/or serial # listed on it & call up any Acura dealership & they will give you the security code for that specific radio. Go buy a Chilton manual at Autozone, Advance Autos, or O'rielly's for the directions on how to remove & install the radio.

What size wrenches are needed to replace front and back brakes 02 chevy silverado LS 1500 2WD? do the fronts and backs require different size wrenches?

Do your self an immense favor and go to an auto parts store and pick up a service manual either by Chilton or Haynes. These manuals have a wealth of information including torque values for anything you bolt back together. Most will show you all the tools you need for servicing your vehicle. You can follow the manual step by step. Like having a master mechanic by your side.
