SOURCE: IAT MAP MAF pics & locations

Go to and buy the car you are working on and you will have access for a year. This should have mechanical illistrations of what you are looking for. By the way that car does not have a MAP sensor.It uses a mass air flow sensor. Hope this helps...Dan

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

you need to take it to your local dealer and raise a big fuss because this is a known problem and if you yell loud enough you should be able to get this fixed under warranty.

What does the code PO106 for a 2001 Mazda MPV 2.5liter engine mean.

code p 0106 refers to manifold absolute (MAP) sensor / barometric pressure(BARO) sensor---range performance problem===causes --intake /exhaust leak---wiring---MAP sensor ---BARO sensor

2006 mazda 6s 3.0 v6. I have a check engine light for Low Barometric pressure. what could cause this issue and what could it affect? also tcs is disabled and i assume it is because of this code

It would be helpful if you included the code you read on the scanner, rather than an abbreviated interpretation of what the scanner gave you. For instance, P0107 means "Manifold Absolute Pressure/Barometric Pressure Circuit Low Input". This indicates that the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor is providing a signal not in agreement with what other sensors are 'telling' the ECM. The MAP sensor is like a vacuum gauge - it is located somewhere in the intake manifold or intake plenum and reports how 'hard' the engine is working to the ECM. These codes indicate there is a problem with the MAP sensor itself or with the wiring between the sensor and the ECM. Double check all the connectors that you disconnected when replacing the valve cover gaskets. As this problem only showed up after you did this work, it's probably a loose connection or pinched wire.

if you follow the big hose that comes off the left hand side of the intake manifold it leads downward to the side mounted intercooler. The MAP sensor is bolted onto the inner side of the intercooler. You have to unscrew the inner wheel well cover on that side and remove the front fender to get in there to the intercooler area. You can take the front wheel off or turn it full one way to get better access. The intercooler sits on the side of the car and fits between the turbocharger (mounted on the back of the engine) and the intake manifold. I'm sure there's a diy somewhere - probably a DIY for changing boost hoses. Last edited by AgGTI; 10-17-2010 at 04:13 PM.

Engine check light on

Map sensor: Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor- it's a measure of manifold vacuum that is sent to engine computer; so it can figure out engine running conditions and how much gas to add for the correct air-fuel mixture.
You probably need a new sensor. I don't know what newmatic means? But, pneumatic is of or pertaining to air, so hey, you better diagnose this before buying a new map sensor- just check if your vacuum hoses are not deteriorated from age, check if you still have a good vacuum signal from the intake manifold. If you were to hook up a vacuum gauge to a intake manifold tap-like the one going to your map sensor-with the engine at normal idle, the gauge should show a nice steady needle somewhere between 16 and 22 inches on the dial face. It's a measure of inches of mercury if you understand science-most people don't so the dial face is very large and you just understand it as inches of vacuum-how much lower the air pressure is inside the intake, versus outside air pressure. All engines create manifold vacuum, and the best, newer engines have a very steady vacuum at idle of 21, or 22 inches on the gauge. That's what you look for, 16 and steady is okay, a good map sensor would be sending a good signal to the computer by a varied voltage signal: manifold pressure is known good, so to speak.

Now manifold pressure varies under different running conditions. But by looking at a vacuum gauge, you are confirming that your manifold vacuum is good, you have no vacuum leaks, no air or vacuum leaks anywhere that will upset the apple cart, and cause the computer to question the info from the map sensor.
If your vacuum reading is way below 16 inches, like 10 inches, or 12, or 14 and holding steady, well, don't you see, you have a major vacuum or air leak somewhere. Vacuum hoses, pcv hose, intake manifold gasket...somewhere, your engine is sucking in extra air, and it's causing havoc with the engine management controls. It's where a lot of poor running conditions occur. So, try a used or new map sensor, or buy a vacuum gauge for $20. It saves a lot of time looking for vacuum leaks, and it's also very good at detecting valve problems and other internal engine conditions. You just have to learn how to use it, and understand what it is telling you.
I think Dodge put the map sensor maybe on the firewall on the passenger side, not sure, it's been a lot of years ago.

Is the map sensor the same thing as the knock sensor on a 1999 daewoo nubira and exactly where is it located

Not the same-the map sensor tells the computer how much air is in the intake to compute fuel requirements-map means manifold absolute pressure-look for it on the firewall or attached to engine-small black box with vacuum hoses, or at least one vacuum hose to it coming from the intake plenum.
The knock sensor is located on the engine block somewhere, maybe under the intake, it is for detecting engine "pinging"-or engine knock, the timing will be retarded a scheduled amount if any cylinders exhibit knock.

Map sensor location

Located on top cylinder on transmission side.The MAP sensor is located either directly on the intake manifold or it is mounted high in the engine compartment and connected to the intake manifold

Need to locate map sensor

In most Chevys during that timeline, the MAP sensor was located on the ring that connects the intake manifold to the large black air box. There should be a sensor with 3-wired pigtail connected to it located somewhere between the air box and intake. SOMETIMES, not all the time, these sensors have acronyms that when broken down, will give us an idea where to look. Manifold Air Pressure sensor helps us narrow the location down in this case.

I have a fault code of p0108 what has caused this fault and how do i fix it on my mazda mpv

Your map sensor, otherwise known as mass air flow sensor is probably bad. You should replace it. it is normally located between the air filter and the throttle body. It senses how much air is going into the throttle body so the car knows how much fuel to inject.

Engine seems to be flooding with fuel

your engine doesn't have a MAP (Manifold absolute pressure) sensor it has a MAF (Mass Airflow) sensor, that is located in the air intake hose to the throttle body of the intake.
