View Full Version : A few intake part questions

02-19-2005, 08:22 AM
I've got a few questions about some of the parts of my intake. - I have a 2001 GAGT

1) What is the sensor that plugs into the black rubber coupling. It is black, and has a little sensor-bulb thing on the end with a plastic cage over it. It plugs into the side of the rubber coupling right before the throttle body.

2) What is the black rubber tube that runs from the top of the rubber coupling to the back of the crankcase. It's all one piece - it plugs into the top of the rubber section and goes all the way to the back of the engine.

Just curious - thanks.

#1 is your intake air temp sensor, #2 is for crankcase ventilation iirc.

Ok thanks. But I thought the MAF detected intake air temp? Or does it just detect flow rate?

the maf just calculates your flow rate and sends a signal to your computer and willl send more fuel or less...

Ok thanks. That all makes sense now.
