I have had repeated issues with my '01 GLX Turbo. See my profile for sputtering/spitting/stalling issues.

While looking for common problems, I found this part on AutoZone.com - never have heard on this forum - about this part. It sounds like it might be part of the issue - since my car seems to act up more when its hot outside... Anyone have any information on this? Where it might be located?

Duralast/Air Charge Temperature Sensor
Duralast/Air Charge Temperature Sensor (SU6304) | 2001 Volkswagen Beetle 4 Cylinders 1.8L Turbo | AutoZone.com


The air charge temperature sensor measures the engines ambient air temperature and reports to the on-board computer
When not replaced, vehicle may experience CEL illumination, failed emissions test, rich or lean running condition and/or excessive fuel consumption.


Thanks for any insight as I continue to chase this ongoing problem.

Could this perhaps be also known as the "Intake Air Temperature Sensor"?

Location:
1.8L (APH, AWP, AWV) - In intake manifold, near throttle valve
1.8L (BKF, BNU) - In intake air duct, integral with MAF sensor

Edit: Further investigation in the Bentley confirms this to be the case. Refer to Fuel, Ignition & Exhaust Systems 2-9, Motronic ME 7 overview

It makes sense

It makes sense that it would be integrated into the MAF... thanks for looking that up.
