Question about 2008 Mazda 6 2.3i
Well, it would not be underneath. Often were attached to firewall behind the engine, or on top of engine somewhere. But check, nowadays the map sensor has been replaced by a MAF sensor (mass air flow sensor) to give the engine computer the same information-how much air is going to engine to compute correct air/fuel mixture.
The MAF sensor is in the big rubber boot from the air filter housing to the throttle body assembly, where air enters the top of engine. There will be a wiring harness connected to it. The sensor is very delicate, but can be taken off and cleaned with a spray can of MAF sensor cleaner, available just about anywhere. I've seen cans of the stuff at Walmart.
