MAP Sensor Code Won't Go Away
Quite a few things can fool the PCM into thinking the MAP sensor has failed when it hasn't.
This is due to the fact that quite a few things can cause the engine to produce low vacuum and set a MAP sensor diagnostic trouble code.
So if the MAP sensor tested good (or you've replaced it) and you're still getting a trouble code for it, then the following testing tips may help you nail down the problem and solution:
- Check fuel pump pressure. A failing fuel pump that's not feeding enough fuel to the engine will cause a lean air fuel mixture that can affect engine performance and engine vacuum.
- Check that the EGR valve isn't stuck open (if equipped).
- Check engine compression of all six cylinders.
- Check for vacuum leaks around the intake manifold.
