Idling issue


Most likely cause is your egr valve. Or a map sensor. They are both easy fixes.

2004 mercury grand marque check engine light on code is p0108 says map sensor or vacum leak but does not have leaks.this car does not have map sensor what else needs to be replaced


PO 108 --- Baro/Map Sensor High Voltage Detected

Yes it does

It is integrated into one unit in the ESM EGR assembly
(possibly)

I have no experience with that,so if you find only an egr valve
& no other sensor with vacuum hoses & wires going to it,replace
the egr valve.

Getting the feeling you missed it

Work the web sites. Put in your motor & EMS Module for egr
& see what comes up

I HAVE ALTIMA 99 AND MECHANIC CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SOLVE MAP SENSOR PROBLEM. HE REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR, WHICH DIDN'T HELP-'SERVE ENGINE SOON' LIGHT GETS BACK ON AS SOON AS I SHUT AND RESTART ENGINE....


He's right both and the code is the EGR valve. The car won't run with the EGR valve removed but it may be disabled some way. Most of the time EGR vales leak or the senser line stopps up. There's a small medal ine coming up the the EGR senser from the exhaust and connects to the senser this line stops up and the senser knows something aught to be happing and it doesn't so it turns the light on. Your mechanic is right it's not hurting anything but it makes the light on. It can be fixed but it'll not run much different.

Insufficient egr flow, already replaced egr valve and purge valve canister


I too replaced the egr valve and was discouraged that the check engine light came back on with the same "insufficient flow" code. I took it to my mechanic to put it on the monster diagnostic machine. It said "check all vacuum line, and or map sensor". After looking real close we found a melted vacuum tube, and a cracked vacuum angle connector. Replaced both vacuum pieces, reset the codes, and good to go. If that fails than the next thing is the map sensor, that tells the EGR valve what to do.

Get a free code at AutoZone or some other place. It could be one of the many sensor problems. Especially the idler sensor or Map, Maf, and on from there.
