Hi All

I am trying to identify what sensor it is that is located ON the intake manifold Directly under the throttle body and behind a 2 way vacuum connection..
Can anybody help please
I've trying to ident some backfire problems and disconnecting this sensor seems to have solved the problem.
Does anybody know what it is ?

Thanks in advance
Cheers

I think we can safely say that it's the air, fuel mixture sensor not to be confused with the o2 sensor. Others may have other names for this though. eg. Air temp sensor

I think that seeing that the heading say's EF6 we can safely say that it is an EF 6cyl.

Ok your a genius and good at guessing now go back to using petroleum based lubricant on rubber o-rings instead of rubber grease :D

Maybe the "Other name" is the right one. If it is the one that is being named then it is the Air Temp Sensor or IAT (Intake Air Temp ) Sensor. There is no Air Fuel Mixture sensor in the intake manifold.

I only mentioned air/fuel sensor because cold air will compress meaning that when cold this sensor eg.air temp sensor or IAT (techical name) will tell the computer,or ECU (technical name)to put more fuel into engine when air is cold. Hot air expands so when hot less fuel would be needed. Only a slight difference but still there. Still not sure look up cold air induction.

What the sensor does was not in question, just the naming of it. The correct name of an Air Temp Sensor, not Air fuel Mixture sensor.

Gentlemen ! Gentlemen!

Thank you all for your input , be it practical or in grammar or in just plain observational skills.

yes it was an IAT - now replaced .
Car now back to running almost normal. (well normal for it...)

Again thanks for your efforts and entertainment, now go have a beer (or your poison of choice )
Cheers and good health
