Manifold Air Temperature Sensor

General Information

Info - V6 models only

1985-87 SENSOR, manifold air temp   25036751
     88 SENSOR, manifold air temp   25037225
"The sensor was reporting that the intake temp was over 150 degrees, but the ECM never set a code for it..."

Try a new sensor. The sensor can go bad but will not read out of normal range so it will not set a trouble code and cause the check engine light to come on. I just changed mine and it made a world of difference.


"Not only does it (MAT sensor) loose its accuracy, but its entire resistance range shifts in a direction to indicate the temperature of the air is higher than it actually is." --S.J. Wynman
