4.7L The MAP sensor is located on the front of the intake manifold. An O-ring seals the sensor to the intake manifold.

  1. Disconnect electrical connector at sensor.
  2. Clean area around MAP sensor.
  3. Remove 2 sensor mounting bolts.
  4. Remove MAP sensor from intake manifold.
To Install:
  1. Clean MAP sensor mounting hole at intake manifold.
  2. Check MAP sensor O-ring seal for cuts or tears.
  3. Position sensor into manifold.
  4. Install MAP sensor mounting bolts (screws). Tighten screws to 3 Nm (25 inch lbs..) torque.
  5. Connect electrical connector.

    What if the bolt is stripped? Any suggestions?

    They make a small spring-type insert called a "helicoil". If you cannot find one of those, you can go the next sive up and re-tap the hole with a tap and die set. Basically with this tool, you are making a new hole with a new bolt.

2000 Dodge Durango 5.2L V8 starts but won't run

By run - do you mean it dies when you put it in gear? Or that it just bogs down when you attempt to accelerate or drive away?
A plugged Catalytic converter will cause this. So will a Bad MAP or MAS (Mas Air ) sensor. So will a bad TPS (Throttle Position) sensor.
Need more input to answer more precisely.

Hello, I'm currently living on Guam and cannot find a mechanic who can correct my 2001 Dodge Durango (with error code P 0108) probelm. It will occassionally idle rough and stall. At times the "check...

P0108 = MAP sensor circuit high voltage

The MAP sensor communicates the barometric pressure inside the intake manifold to the ecm.
This code can indicate either a fault in the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor, or a possible vacuum leak, either from a hose or the intake gasket.

It could be the connector on this sensor isn't making good contact. I would check the connector before you replace the sensor. It more than likely needs a new MAP sensor.

1999 dodge durango-Heat does not work unless it's 60 degrees outside what could be wrong?

Try replacing the MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor first. You can try disconnecting the MAP sensor and see if the engine starts, if it does, then replace the MAP sensor. Good luck and hope this helps, check the wire harness to the MAP sensor.
A Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor is a input sensor that measures the change in engine manifold pressures. Not to be confused with a baro (barometric sensor) that measures the altitude in which the vehicle is being operated in. And also not to be confused with a MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor)that measures air flow and density of the air for the computer to make fuel adjustments.
The MAP is an electronic device that is composed of an empty chamber with a flexible diaphragm in the center. One side of the chamber would be exposed to atmospheric pressure while the other is connected to the engine vacuum. This difference in pressure causes the diaphragm to bend one way or the other. The degree of deflection is measured by the strain gage and that data is relayed to the ecm. Depending on how much or little vacuum there is in the engine depends on the operating conditions and thus the ecm can know how hard the engine is running and therefore supply the correct amount of fuel to supply and maybe when to most efficiently ignite the spark.

What Happens When a Map Sensor Goes Bad on 2001 dodge durango?

Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor controls fuel delivery and ignition timing, the pressure in the intake manifold will vary due to stress or work load, the MAP sensor monitors this, reporting to the computer. Good luck.

My check engine light is on. The code is P0121

I believe all the Mopar OBDC codes are the same. A list of the 2001 codes were posted on a PT Cruiser site here: 2001 Chrysler codes

Your error says the throttle position sensor and MAP sensor disagree with each other

2001 dodge durango v8 4.7

If the speedometer still works,then no you don't need the speed sensor.The problem sounds more like the catalytic converter Which was a recall item on most Durangos and Dakotas for that year should be replaced for free at the dealer.
