intake air temp sensor starting to fail and what ecu does
I have seen many logs from ski with different intake air temps.
This can be result of outside air temps and different intercoolers and so on.
But in some cases its the sensor itself starting to fail.
I have seen skis with low hour on them with bad sensors.
Last was a 2013 Rxt-x with 10 hours on it.
When ECU see that the intake temps start to raise it will ad more and more fuel and retard the ignition.
Result is that you will have a increased consumption and loose top speed and rpms!
This error can be a bit tricky to see in the beginning since it can come gradually.
When intake temps are to high ,ski will go in to limp mode but then you will already have run it for a while and maybe your far from replacements when it do limps.
Best way is to have a vtech datalogger but you can also check the sensor with buds.
Easiest way to see if sensor is ok is to have a cold engine and see if intake air temp sensor displays similar values as engine temp and exhaust temp.
Not ok sensor

They also become problematic if they get splashed with water droplets while active.[/QUOTE]
This can happen when the I/C goes bad/leaks which happens alot with the newer skis.

What would be some other symptoms of a bad sensor? I am fighting loosing rpm problem and can't seem to narrow it down. I go out for a blast and pull rpm 8200-8220 and then go a half hour later and I am down 100 rpm. Temp and humidity relatively the same.
