    I'd say the answer is in the question!

    Nope, the Air Flow Meter or MAF, will be on the inlet from the Air filter.


    The Temp sensor will be on the inlet manifold.

    not 2 in 1 but theres a plug that connects to the airbox on old valvers and i've always wondered if that was the temp sensor but mine has a resistor in it so im not sure

    the black one is the air temp sensor and sits in the pipe from the airbox

    the blue one clips to the water housing on the gearbox side of the block (under the dizzy) but theres a few types and colours 2/4 pin blue/black/yellow/brown

    Could the air temp sensor cause the revs in my 2.0 16v to intermmitently drop?

    Sometimes the revs drop on idle to almost stalling point but it recovers sometimes it does not :(

    yeah the idle control valve is what i was referring to with other things, but from past experience the car would not idle at all if this was the case

    could try unplugging maf to see how it idles with it disconnected, should rule it out
