2007.5 to 2020 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins Intake Air Temperature Sensor
Your Cummins 6.7L turbo diesel engine uses an intake air temperature sensor to determine changes in the intake air stream. The intake air temperature sensor on your Dodge Ram truck with the 6.7L Cummins measures the ambient temperature of the intake air. The information is transmitted to the computer uses this measurement to calculate the correct amount of ignition timing. This Cummins 2897332 Sensor must be functioning in its optimum range for peak engine performance.

The air inlet temperature changes are used to indicate engine load, boost, operational elevation, and other variables that enable your ECU to make necessary changes so your diesel can run at peak performance.
When the IAT sensor fails inaccurate temperature information is sent to the ECU. If your 6.7L Cummins is now running with a rough idle, hard start, sputtering, loss of power and inadequate throttle response it can be caused by a failing IAT Sensor - Intake Air Temperature Sensor, This 6.7L Cummins sensor is located on the cold air intake side.
Your 6.7L Cummins diesel engine is dependent upon the IAT Sensor - intake air temperature sensor to determine the temperature of the engines incoming air. If the IAT sensor is not functioning properly, it can affect the way its computer makes temperature based adjustments. A malfunctioning IAT sensor can cause these conditions to appear on your Dodge Ram truck:
On cold mornings a malfunctioning IAT sensor may cause your vehicle to take longer to start. The faulty IAT sensor tells the Cummins diesel engine computer that the air in the intake is a different temperature than it actually is and may cause the truck to obtain the improper fuel mixture to the engine.
The actual temperature of your engines intakes air affects the amount of fuel needed to properly operate your diesel engine. If the IAT is not working properly, the computer of the engine may provide an enriched fuel mixture then what is actually required. The enriched air-fuel mixture will have an effect on the performance of the engine, resulting in decreased fuel efficiency.
If your IAT sensor is not working properly and your 6.7L Cummins computer senses it, it will generate an error code causing your vehicle's check engine light to illuminate on the dashboard. If your IAT causes your check engine light to come on, you can attach a code reader to your OBD II port to obtain the listed error code. This code can then diagnosed to determine an error code that corresponds to IAT problems.
If your Dodge Ram Cummins Turbo Diesel truck is experiencing decreased engine performance, it could be the 2897332 Air Intake Temperature Sensor.
