What are all the Different Sensors in my Vehicle?

Types of Sensors Used in Automobiles

In this article, we will examine several automotive sensors that; measure oil pressure, temperature, emissions, and coolant levels. Understanding how each of these sensors work is vital. To help you better understand these sensors, below are some popular sensors in automobiles, including the following:

  • Mass airflow sensor: Measures the amount of air entering the engine or the airflow.
  • Engine Speed Sensor: Helps your car run smoothly by communicating with the ECU.
  • Oxygen Sensor: An electronic device for measuring the amount of oxygen (O2) in a gas or liquid.
  • Spark Knock Sensor: This sensor detects the condition of spark knock, which occurs when gasoline starts burning before it should.
  • Coolant Sensor: The coolant sensor measures the engine's temperature through the fuel management system.
  • Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAF) Sensor: Provides instantaneous manifold pressure measurements for the engine's ECU during startup.
  • Fuel Temperature Sensor: Identifies how much fuel is required for a vehicle to operate consistently.
  • Voltage sensors: These are tools that can be attached to equipment, machines, or other assets.
  • Camshaft Position Sensor: The engine control can determine the exact position of the crankshaft drive using the camshaft position sensor.
  • Throttle Position Sensor: It measures and monitors the air intake of an engine.
  • Vehicle Speed Sensor: A small device mounted on your car's transmission gauges the speed of your car.
