Air Charge/Manifold Temperature Sensors

Air Charge/Manifold Temperature Sensors

What does an Air Charge/Manifold Temperature Sensor do?
The Air Charge/Manifold Temperature sensor is used by the computer to measure air density for fuel mixture control. The computer uses this information to trim the air/fuel ratio according to the air density.

Where are these Barometric Pressure Sensors located?
Standalone BARO sensors are typically mounted on the firewall or the inside fender skirt. Late model BARO sensors are incorporated into the MAP sensor, and may be mounted on the intake manifold.

Will a malfunctioning Barometric Pressure Sensor illuminate the check engine light or affect vehicle operation?
Yes, a failing BARO sensor can illuminate the MIL, and may cause drivability problems such as stumbling, stalling and sluggish acceleration.

What are the common causes of failure?
Typically these sensors fail due to exposure to the elements as the result of mounting location.

How to determine if these sensors are malfunctioning?
The BARO sensor can be checked with a scan tool by comparing the scan tool read out to the local barometric reading. Standalone Ford sensors require a special tool to determine if the sensor is functioning properly. The ECM will set DTC P0105 when there is an open or short in the BARO circuit. There is a Fail-Safe strategy that turns on when this code is detected. The PCM uses a predetermined ignition timing and AF trim to maintain emission levels.

What makes Standard® BARO Sensors the best?
As a basic manufacturer, Standard® has complete control of the manufacturing process from componentry to finished product to ensure precise and trouble-free operation every time
