Just changed the map sensor. It was running fine for a day but has started acting up again. What could be the problem?

When it gets warm it acts like it's not getting any gas, starts to cut out and dies

Well Ashley you need to do some testing , check fuel pressure , check for spark at the plug wires . Something is cutting out when warmed up , ignition control module , a ignition coil , crankshaft position sensor ! Check the basics first when acting up , spark ,if there is spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine , if it tries to start then you have a fuel delivery problem ! A engine sensor could be shorting out bring the 5 volt ref. voltage circuit of the engine computer ! If your not sure of these thing's instead of just replacing parts an wasting money you mite want to take it to a ASE certified repair shop !

I went to go get my car inspected and it wouldn't pass because of a code P0106. I want to explain how my car is acting when started especially when its cold out. The colder it is the worse it starts.

I'd be more inclined to the cold start side of things. Relay, cold start sensor. Water Temp sensor not activating the cold start setting.

The lights going dim could be something else completely

Hesitation when throttle is pressed

Sounds like ignition related(due to occuring when it warms up)Try ignition coil(possibly ignition module in distributor also,but I doubt it,because this will usually be a hot soak/no start condition)

1999 GMC Suburban V8 starts with little hesitation, I warm it up take off it seems fine then it starts chugging and misfires. It doesn't stall but it clears up in about 5-10 minutes. We just changed...

Might be your coolant temp. sensor. Also, does your suburban have two oxygen sensors? Many cars have one in front of catalytic converter for computer fuel requirements, and another behind the cat., mainly used to measure health of the cat.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...

I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Truck will crank and run fine till it warms up...when im on the interstate running a steady speed it acts like its running out of fuel or lossing spark... if i let off the gas it will clear up then start...

Have you had the computer scanned? It sounds like a fuel injector problem. Injectors may be dirty. Or possibly a fault in the injector circuit. You didn't mention changing the fuel filter. I know some of the Dodges have the filter integrated with the pump. If yours has an independent filter it should be replaced.

Service engine soon light is on..

If the check engine light has been coming on you could take it to an Advance Auto Parts store and they can run the codes for you for FREE and tell you why the light is coming on. That way you or whoever is not just guessing so you are not replacing parts not needed which can get expensive. Sounds like it could be as simple as a tune up but could also be a sensor of some kind which there are several that could cause your problem. MAP sensor, Mass Air Flow sensor, throttle position sensor just to name a few.

When warm, will run ragged

crankshaft position sensor. when it gets hot and your car starts acting up pour some cold water on it. if your car works fine for a few minutes then thats it. You will find the cps on the forward side of the crankshaft behind the pulley. Also look to see if it is positioned correctly. ie the metal splines on the pulley are passing through evenly with clearance on both sides. there is a through bolt on the sensor bracket that you loosen to adjust the sensor back and forth.
