Map sensor 97 plymouth breeze

Engine light stays on . code tells it the air intake sensor. There is no place for intake sensor on 97 plym breeze 2.0. Auto Zone looked up in book. Says for the model Dodge rerouted air intake to the map sensor. Says they are the same. Replaced map sensor today. For 2 min. the engine light was off. But now its back on . And test says its the same thing again air intake. What is the purpose of the map sensor are air intake what is the purpose. My speed omitor bounces random now. Have recently done alot of work to this car. The problem started after replaced transmition. Then it would not climb small hills 65-down to 35 floor bording . Kept stalling out #3 spark plugs every 7 to 10 miles then rotate to #4 . then repeat every time replaced small amount of oil there. Replaced the coil wiring also. Its seem to be running smoother at the moment. This is also not the original trans mission. But the Dodge house in my city rebuilt. And ever since 1 problem after another. Could it be the trans knocking everything haywire. Please help no one seems to know whats going on. Cleta

Have you tried resetting the computer if not just take the battery cables off for about 5 minutes (i know kills the radio stations you set and resets the clock)but it resets the computer.try this option and see if this fixes your problem 10 min work. also if im not mistaken thats the same engine thats in a plymouth and dodge neon thanks jeff

I have a 97' plymouth breeze all the lights work

Could just be a bad sensor? or maybe a connection issue with cables,corrosion, etc....... Pepboys will hook up test computer and give you a free diagnois code to reasearch problem or you could take the code and give to your mechanic to save on additional costs of testing at shop.

Check engine light code PO135, 02 heater circuit, bank1, sensor 1 for 2000 plymouth breeze

It is telling you that the oxygen sensor has failed. Replace the sensor, it is located in the exhaust pipe between the engine and the catalytic converter. The part runs around 40 dollars. It is fairly easy to spot, if you do not recognize it, purchase the replacement and look for the same critter on the exhaust.
I recommend getting the OEM sensor to save grief during install.
Hope this helps.

1995 chrysler new yorker starts fine and idles fine. When I put in gear and take off it bogs down and stalls. Could this be a fuel pressure regulator.

More likely the MAP sensor. A new sensor is $65, so I recommend you test it to see if it's bad. Test procedures are pasted below. Please let me know if it passes the tests or if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

OPERATIONThe PCM supplies 5 volts to the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor. The MAP sensor converts what it reads as the amount of intake manifold pressure into a return signal. The PCM monitors the MAP sensor output voltage. As vacuum increases in the intake manifold, the MAP sensor voltage decreases proportionately. Also, as vacuum decreases, the MAP sensor voltage increases proportionately.
During engine cranking, before the engine starts running, the PCM determines atmospheric air pressure from the MAP sensor voltage. While the engine operates, the PCM determines the intake manifold pressure from the MAP sensor voltage.
Based on MAP sensor voltage and inputs from other sensors, the PCM adjusts spark advance and the air/fuel mixture.

Fig. Fig. 2: Manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor connector terminal pin locations-1993-95 models

Before testing any electrical component, inspect the wiring and connectors for damage. Also wiggle the connectors to ensure a that they are firmly engaged. When testing the sensor, use a high input impedance digital volt-ohmmeter. Insert the tester leads through the back of the connector. Do not disconnect the electrical harness.

  1. Inspect the vacuum hose connections at the sensor and throttle body. Repair or replace the hoses, if any hoses are cracking or vacuum is leaking.

For the following step, do not unplug the sensor connector-it must stay plugged in.
  1. Make sure that the sensor wiring connector is fully inserted into the sensor (loose connections can create trouble codes). Check the MAP sensor output voltage by inserting the negative lead of a voltmeter into the back of terminal 2 and the positive test leads through the back of the harness connector terminal 3 (as marked on the sensor body). Refer to the accompanying wiring illustration. With the ignition switch in the ON position and the engine OFF , the output voltage should be 4-5 volts.
  2. Start the engine and allow to idle at normal operating temperature. The output voltage should drop to 1.5-2.1 volts.
  3. Test the PCM terminal 36 (1993-95 models), and terminal 1 (1996-97 models) for the same voltage described above to verify the wire harness condition. Repair the wiring harness if the voltage is not the same.
  4. Test the MAP sensor supply voltage at the sensor connection terminal 2 and 1 with the ignition ON . The voltage should be 5 volts. Check the supply voltage at terminal 61 of the PCM. This should also be 5 volts.
  5. Using an ohmmeter, test the MAP sensor ground circuit at the sensor connection terminal 1 and at the PCM terminal 43 (1993-95 models), terminal 4 (1996-97 models). Repair the wire harness for an open circuit if infinite resistance is detected.


Fig. Fig. 6: On the 3.5L engine, the MAP sensor is threaded into the left side of the intake manifold plenum

The MAP sensor is located in the rear of the intake manifold plenum on the 3.3L engine. On the 3.5L engine, the MAP sensor is threaded into the left side of the intake manifold plenum.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the electrical connector from the sensor.
  3. Remove the MAP sensor mounting screws.
  4. Remove the sensor from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Install the MAP sensor into its position and secure in place with the mounting screws. Tighten the screws to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm), then rotate it to a horizontal position.
  2. Plug the electrical connector back into the sensor. Make certain that the connector is clean and snug fitting.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.

Code 51 on a Plymouth sun dance. How do I fix it?

Code 51 = Oxygen sensor stuck in lean mixture mode. ( this will often cause engine to run rich due to oxygen sensor telling engine controller that it is running lean, thus send more fuel) This may be caused by M.A.P. sensor as well, so check vacuum lines and clean connections on MAP sensor first. It should be one of 2 things, Fault from MAP sensor, or faulty oxygen sensor.

My 93 plym voyager, 3.0 has a hesitation when

if your having cold engine start hesitation,you need to check the engine temp switch,it tells the computer how cold it is,so the engine can adjust to a rich start and not a lean one.if the switch is faulty and the computer is being told it is 80degrees,you will not get a rich mixture like no choke at all

Check Engine light came on and car stalled

Crank Sensor usually have two function,1st the sensor sense the rotation of the flywheel and picks up by the sensor than the sensor send a sigle to your computer telling your computer to send sparks and fuel to to the engine. When sensor goes bad engine quits running, sometime check engine lights come on as computer is not sending no fuel or sparks. Some car has two sensor, one for the fuel and one for sparks. The sensor usually locate next to the flywheels near the main crank. Some are difficult to get to; others are easy. 4cyc on foreign are easy to get to compare to domestic. V6 front wheel drive I find it difficult and V8 rear wheel drive are better. If you plan to keep the car and fix it yourself, the best thing to do is invest and purchase Chilton Repair Manual if planning do it yourself, it will save you lots of money in the future. On 96' breeze should be a breeze to fix, from experience working on Dodge and Chrysler are fairly easy to work on.

Cranks but will not stay running

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
There are just too many possible causes for the problem you describe. Example: Sensors like the Mass Air Flow (MAF), Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor, Crank Position Sensor (CKP), Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor, Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor, vacuum leaks, intake air hose leak, Wiring & connectors, clogged intake air filter, bad/contaminated fuel, malfunctioning injectors, poor ignition/spark or spark plugs or wires, Major Engine Mechanical problems, Out of Time, etc. etc. etc.
