Hello! The problem is more than likely being caused by the Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor...It is bolted to the side of the throttle body...Has wire colors Gray (+5volts)...Light Green (Signal out)...And Black (Return or Ground)...Using safety pins...Push the point into the rear of the in-place MAP connector...Clip the (+) meter probe, set to read +5volts, to the Light Green wire...The (-) probe to the Black...Start the engine...At idle reading is close to +5 volts...At 2500 rpm reading drops to 1.5-2.0 volts...If you have already replaced the MAP and do not get these results...Pull the MAP connector and read back into it using the same procedure...If, for instance, the Light Green signal lead remains on +5 volts it is probably shorted to the Gray in the harness...No voltage is present; The Gray wire is open...Or, No ground on the Black, the Black is open...Whatever you find wrong...Merely cut out the bad wire and re-connect on both ends..See diagram of MAP location below....Send a comment via e-mail....Guru...Saailer
Aaron, I had the same problem. It is the most expensive part of course the computer. I replaced everything as well till I replaced it. They are remanufactured and have had problems with them as well. I am on my third one now at 200k miles. Oh and by the way it does not show up on the diagnostic check. Good luck
