    where does this connector go on fiero v6?

    Someone removed my air filter unit on my v6 fiero and I see this connector hanging...yet I can't seem to find any unplugged connectors on the transmission or engine!

    It's on the far left side - everything looks plugged in near the distributor cap-- see

    Can anyone tell me what connector this is and where it's supposed to go? The car seems to run ok without it , but it does die out at low speed reversing and need to keep foot on the gas

    It is your air temperature sensor wire by the look of it. There will be a small sensor on the air intake around the air filter. If I recall it threads into the air filter canister.

    Sounds right because As I said , my whole stock air filter assembly was removed (actually stolen)

    I now am using a polished aluminum cold air intake off eBay . There are holes in the aluminum tube (I'm assuming to install a sensor ?)

    Should I buy some kind of sensor and install it in the cold air tube? Or Will the car run fine without it?

    Anyone know What's the part number for the sensor ?

    The computer is looking for the inout from that sensor. Your fuel and drivability will not be 100%
    Just thread it in anywhere in the intake system. You can even glue it into a rubber hose.

    GM part numbers
    1985-87 SENSOR, manifold air temp 25036751
    1988 SENSOR, manifold air temp 25037225

    Thanks !!
    So do I even need to put it in the intake tract (does it need the vacuum ) or can I just put it in a spare piece of rubber hose and point it down low by the old air inlet location?

    Is there any advantage in "tricking " it to see colder (or hotter) temps than the actual intake air temp?

    IT does not need to see vacuum. It does want to see air rushing past it.
