where is IAT sensor located on dodge diesel 3500?

The MAP and IAT are in combination on the intake manifold/plenum cover plate.
Its called a "combo" sensor.
the IAT is mounted on top on the output side of the air cleaner held by two torx screws. Tha maf is located on the engine next to the air intake manifold. It can get dirty from runnning oiled air cleaners.Be careful not to confuse the "combo" sensor with the "combo" sensor on the airbox. They are similar but different.
