Re: Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor

engine coolant sender is at the rear of the engine near the cam belt cover. inlet temp sender is in the throttle body i think. I'll just check that and get back to you

Re: Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor

oh I see, There have been some threads about these mods before. The general thoughts are they are not much cop. it fools the ecu into thinking the engine is cooler than it really is and so enrichens the mixture. Fuel consumption increases and it won't pass the mot whilst fitted. Other than that I don't think they do any lasting damage. Start a new thread more relevant to what you want to do and get reaction on it.

Re: Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor

The engine managemnt system is not fooled for long. The Lambda senses the increased fuel and adjusts it downwards.

On a seperate note, overfuelling causes bore wash, lack of fuel causes overheating.

Cheers

Re: Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor

yes you are right about the sender in the head but when I answered the question it was not clear what was being asked.

Re: Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor

Nothing wrong with the question at all mate.
My brain was not working on the same wavelength, if you had said
I'm thinking about one of these resistor thingies then I would have known that it was the fueklling sensors you where looking for not the temp guage one. I should perhaps of twiggede by the second part of the Question about the Inlet temp sensor.
But hey sometimes I'm not perfect.
