Hyundai Tucson: Intake Air Temperature Sensor (IATS)

Hyundai Tucson - Fourth generation (NX4) - (2020-2023) - Workshop Manual / Engine Control - Fuel System / Intake Air Temperature Sensor (IATS)


Intake Air Temperature Sensor (IATS) is included inside Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor and detects the intake air temperature.

To calculate precise air quantity, correction of the air temperature is needed because air density varies according to the temperature. So the ECM uses not only MAPS signal but also IATS signal. This sensor has a Negative Temperature Coefficient (NTC) and its resistance is in inverse proportion to the temperature.

  1. Turn ignition switch OFF.
  2. Disconnect IATS connector.
  3. Measure resistance between IATS terminals 1 and 2.
  4. Check that the resistance is within the specification.

Specification : Refer to "Specification"


  1. Turn ignition switch OFF and disconnect the battery negative (-) terminal.
  2. Disconnect the manifold absolute pressure sensor connector (A).
  3. Remove the manifold absolute pressure sensor (B) after loosening the bolt.

Tightening Torque : 9.8 - 11.8 N.m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf.m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb-ft)




  • Install the component with the specified torques.
  • Note that internal damage may occur when the component is dropped. In this case, use it after inspecting.
  • Insert the sensor in the installation hole and be careful not to damage when installation.
  1. Install in the reverse order of removal.


     Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS)

    Description The Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor (ECTS) is located in the cylinder block and cylinder head, and measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The thermistor of the cooling water temperature and resistance has a negative temp

     Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKPS)

    Description Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKPS) detects the crankshaft position and is one of the most important sensors of the engine control system. If there is no CKPS signal input, fuel is not supplied.That is, vehicle can't run without

     Camshaft Position Sensor (CMPS)

    Description Camshaft Position Sensor (CMPS) is a hall sensor and detects the camshaft position by using a hall element. It is related with Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKPS) and detects the piston position of each cylinder which the CKPS can
