Why dose my truck turn off when I plug in my map Senior hose and when it unplug it idle high

That would mean its a bad map sensor ,when its unplugged it should throw a check engine which puts it in limp mode and ignores the sensor and then riches out the fuel mix to "protect"the motor which is why the rough idle.but is intended to get you home In a case where it goes bad map will fix it up

Where is the map sensor located on a 05 gsxr 600, and what dose it look like

MAP stands for manifold absolute pressure. Follow your intake hose from the air inlet duct. Your Map sensor should sit not far from the inlet manifold. Will have at least one vacuum hose attached, coming from the inlet manifold, & an electrical connection running to the ecu.

Where is located barometric pressure sensor in gdi 4g93 mitsubishi

Tell me what code you are getting .
A barometric pressure sensor dose not work on its own .
You have the mass air flow sensor this is the first air sensor coming into the vehicle then you have an air temp sensor then what is called ECT engine coolant temp sensor .
The problem to me sounds like the MAP sensor manifold absolute pressure .You loss this the vehicle is not going to run to good.
If it wore the mass air flow it would cost the most the map is far less in price still not cheap the barometric sensor it likely a symptom of the real problem .
Check the gas flow in side the engine like EGR and EVAP systems to a vacuum thing .

Dose the buick park avenue use a map sensor or a mass air flow sensor. or are they the same thing

They are different types of sensors, but in your car the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor, along with the BAROmetric sensor are used to estimate the required fuel flow through the throttle body injectors. These sensors measure pressures inside and outside the engine to estimate airflow. You do not have a MAF sensor. These are more common in later vehices with mulit-port fuel injection. A MAF sensor actually measures the airflow into the engine using a hot wire anemometer. You are correct in believing the sensors serve the same purpose, that is to calculate the fuel flow required for stoichiametric combustion. The oxygen sensor also feeds back to the computer to further refine the fuel charge by measuring oxygen in the combustion products. If excess oxygen is detected, the fuel charge is increased. This is known as closed-loop operation. Closed loop operation is not started until the engine is at operating temperature. If you have more questions, please let me know. I have pasted the location of the MAP sensor below. The sensor is mounted to the air cleaner, but it has a vacuum hose that leads to the throttle body, which is where the pressure must be measured.

1989 dodge datona 2.2 turbo coge 13

hello i got a 1990 dodge daytona shelby the code 13 is MAP sensor signal to the computer (ECU) not changing so the map sensor is should be on the firewall with a vacuum line on it little black box looking thing well make sure it plug in and good and that it dose not have a leaking vacuum line if that dose not work you have a bad map sensor thay run about 30 to 100 at auto zone o onec you think you fix it remove the battery term for about 5 mins with the key on and trun the key off before conttecting the battey back up drive for about 20 mins to see if the code show up if you get code 55 all that means is end of falt code list you mite get a code 12 meaning The battery has been disconnected and the computer (ECU) has been reset hope that help keep that daytona runing it a good car

When the engine is starved with gas then the issue may be the MAP sensor or worse bad injector. Check as well the transmission. Try to observe if your vehicle does not change gear properly. It could be a speed sensor issue.

Hello 1988 dodge daytona shelby z bucs when you run it hard

hello i got a 1990 dodge daytona shelby you may want to see if you got a vacumm leak any were on the car and the map sensor has a vacuum line on it make sure it not leaking it would not hurt to replace the map sensor what it dose is runs a single to your computer then your computer controls the fuel injectors base on the map sensor voltage hope this helps

O2 sensor heater circuit malf.

are there any other codes set?. frist i would look at the map sensor readings. the map sensor reads vauccmn at ilde the engine shows a high vacuumn reading 14 to 21 inches, as the throttle is opended up vacuumn drops, if the sensor dose not responds the pcm will go to a fixed value. which means the o2 sensor will only read what it senses in the exhaust, what you have to remeber is that the o2 sensors are the last sensors to see what and how the mtr is running. if you do not have abilty to look at the data stream you may end up spending more money by replacing parts until you fix it . good luck and let us know what happens
