IAT sensor what does it affect

I was wondering what does reinstalling the IAT incorrectly or not putting it all the way in the intake tube affect. I also read on another post about the direction of the tab on the IAT sensor should face down ?????.

If the IAT isn't installed correctly I'd guess you would get a trouble code display. As far as the tab position, I doubt that has any bearing on it as long as the connector is all the way on.

I always thought the sensor face should point to/from direction of air flow. If not,.. main air flow is hitting the plastic halo protecting the probe itself.

If not installed corrctly, it will not corrctly report intake air temps, which will have an effect on timing and fuel. Also, the white tab should point toward the incoming air, IIRC.
