sensor is basically a device which detects and converts your signal of interest into a measurable or observable quantity (mostly an electrical signal). Say for example, a pressure sensor detects pressure and converts it into an electrical output which can be further processed for actuation or to be displayed.

It uses a MAP sensor.It uses a MAP sensor.

No map sensor is manifold absolute pressure sensor and tps throttle position sensor

No, it is not a knock sensor at all. An AF (Air/Fuel Ratio) sensor is also know as a wide range oxygen sensor. It is the newer type oxygen sensor.

Downstream O2 sensor is an O2 sensor after the catalytic converter. Upstream O2 sensor is an O2 sensor before the catalytic converter.

Pulse signals from what? speed sensor abs wheel sensor fuel pump pressure sensor crankshaft sensor camshaft sensor knock sensor

O2 (Oxygen) sensor. HO2S (Heated Oxygen) sensor. ECT (Engine Coolant Temp) sensor. MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor. CKP (Crankshaft Position) sensor. CMP (Camshaft Position) sensor. ECL (Engine Coolant Level) sensor. EOP (Engine Oil Pressure) sensor. EVP (EGR Valve Position) sensor. KS (Knock) sensor. PFS (Purge Flow) sensor. TPS (Throttle Position) sensor. VSS (Vehicle Speed) sensor. I'm sure I missed several more.

It does not have a mass airflow sensor.It does not have a mass airflow sensor.

Mass air flow sensor, O2 sensor

a map sensor is a manifold absolute pressure sensor.

What type of sensor? The tire pressure sensor is located in the wheel.

IMA sensor stands for idle mixture adjustment sensor.

If you are referring to a knock sensor, then it is simply a sensor made to shut down the engine if undue knocks are recognized by the sensor.

A knock sensor is a piezoresistive sensor whose signal is varied by the amount of force or pressure applied to it.

There is no sensor by this name in a toytota. The Toyota air/fuel sensor is also known as the upstream air/fuel sensor. The Toyota downstream sensor is also known as the downstream O2 sensor.

There many sensors in that vehicle, crank sensor, cam sensor, engine temp sensor, oil pressure sensor, oxygen sensors, fuel level sensor, fuel tank evap pressure sensor, mass air flow sensor, manifold absolute pressure senser and the list goes on. Need to know which sensor you are looking for.

LS does not have a knock sensor. GSR does have a knock sensor

There are two oxygen sensor for Mitsubishi Outlander. Front Oxygen Sensor and Rear Oxygen Sensor

Yes, but a unit without a sensor will not provide a sensor signal.

No. The crank sensor reads the crankshaft location and speed. The cam sensor reads the camshaft.

How do i replace speed sensor on 1992 toyota previa and where is the sensor located

It does not have a crank case sensor.It does not have a crank case sensor.

No, the range sensor reads what gear or "range" you have shifted into. A speed sensor reads the speed of an item.
