Intake Air Temperature Sensor

When I installed my AM CAI, I noticed that 2002 V6 did not have an intake air temperature sensor. How will this effect the performance of my car or is this common in some V6's.

Thanks

Re: Intake Air Temperature Sensor

for your vehicle its internal to the MAF sensor, you still have one. You just need to plug that hole so un-metered air is not let in.

Re: Intake Air Temperature Sensor

most kits come with a push pin or something to block the hole, if you dont have one go to autozone and get one and cut off the end so only a little as possible sticks in

Re: Intake Air Temperature Sensor

I plugged it with something loose and had to pay the price for it. Fell in and got sucked into the engine. Broke a piston, messed up the block, etc. Machine shop i took it to cut the block too short and messed it up more. Ended up just replacing the engine. Not my best day, out of stupidity
