September 9, 2004On Chevy trucks there is a small sensor that goes either in the airbox or the air intake hose, it is about half inch big. Two wires run off it. What is the name of this sensor?

September 9, 2004M.A.F. ? I'm a Ford woman but I would guess they are all pretty close to the same. Don't know too much about them except that if you have an oiled filter like I do, you need to clean it out with some contact cleaner after awhile or your truck starts running like dookie. Hope thats the answer you're looking for.
September 9, 2004I believe your referring to the IAT sensor (Intake Air Temperature).
That MAF sensor is abit larger than 1/2 inch.
September 9, 2004TritonKiss...good try. But believe me I know what a MAF is...after the problems they have given me, I know what they are.
My ford doesnt come with one of these...so which is it IAT or ACT?
I ask cause I washed my K&N filter last night and forgot to remove that lil sensor from it. Got water on there, dont know if it got damaged or not, but judging by the size I figure it shouldnt cost more than a few bucks to replace...better safe than sorry.
September 9, 2004Well according to AutoZone...it is the same part...IAT & ACT
Thanks to all 3 of you...Fmthefixer, you gonna be posting more pics of the wife and your grizzly self so all these weirdos can druel over them.
September 9, 2004My sensor is located on the air intake tube between the air box and the MAF sensor.
September 10, 2004Mondosil, I think that was the original location of my sensor also, cause my friends Astro Van also has it on the tube between MAF and filter. But on my Tahoe I have a K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kit, so it no longer utilizes the stock intake tube, filter or airbox. So I wasn't sure if the part was a GM part or if it came with the K&N kit. AutoZone has it for under 10 bucks, so I'm gonna buy a new one to be on the safe side.
September 10, 2004I'll definitely have some new pictures of us and the 'Tailgating gang' up on my web site, Jets Tailgating page, from this Sunday's up coming Jets game. It's opening day and the weather's supposed to be perfect. .....
One thing though, I really don't want to add any pictures of her to my gallery because, according to the rules, the pictures become the property of this site .... And I don't want them to be anyone else's property but mine ....
