Temperature/Resistance values for the Intake Air Temperature Sensor are given below.
Sensor values are monitored by the On-board Diagnostic function of the Engine Control Module (ECM) and detected problems will set Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) 10.

Intake Air temperature Resistance
-4 F (-20 C) 20K Ohms
32 F (0 C) 5K Ohms
104 F (40 C) 1K Ohms
176 F (80 C) 350 Ohms
248 F (120 C) 100 Ohms

since you provided no motor info, I gave this generic description
