Exclamation IAT Sensor ?

Where, exactly, is the "Intake Airflow Temperature Sensor" on a 2000 XK8 ? I've seen several versions/suggestions. I need the truth.

He who seeks the IAT must first find the relevant forum.

I've moved your question from General Tech Help to XK8/XKR forum. This is the place to post technical questions about your model.

Default Isnít that built into the MAF sensor?

Wasnít aware there was a separate air intake temp. Isnít it part of the MAF sensor on the air tunnel?

it is part of the MAF. it is the bulb part 1/3 down the shaft that is sometimes incorrectly thought to be the mass sensor. the mass sensor is up in the head of the MAF assembly.
