    Ok here we go now, With all this in mind of the Map reading way over the limit i need some more info Have you had any engine work done ?

    Have you disconnected the battery recently ?

    If yes to one of these you will need to go to the dealer to have them put the DBR machine on to re enter the vin and milage. some how you lost the read only memory.

    I am sure the cars idle is off and runs rough ? Please also check the cam sensor and make sure it is connected and check connector for corrosion. Clean and add dielectric silicon to connector. Check cavity C for five volts with a meter. Scale 20 volt. Also check the crank sensor as well.

Vehicle has poor idle and dies. Only codes are for oxygen sensor short. Data stream is normal except for o2 sensors not switching and when symptom occurs map sensor reads low and vacuum is low but that is...

This is very clear, replace the o2 sensor that so important to the fuel mixture and idle and etc, you first need to replace that o2, then reset the codes and run it, if that sensor is shorting and killing the 5 volt ref signal to other sensors or computer it will run like sh***t, start there that may be your only problem, depending on how long that sensors been bad you may have cat converter damage, but thats next, hope this helps.

Idles okay, runs rough when gas applied

Either a bad MAP sensor, or TPS. What is the code for the check engine light? This will most likely tell you what it is.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Rough idle, and rough in the 50 - 65 mph

code 12 is start

13** No difference recognized between the engine MAP reading and the barometric (atmosphereic) pressure reading at start-up

Code 55 is end so 13 is all you need , basically your map isnt working
its an easy fix if thats all , take one off , put new one on
