It could just be a bad signal from the MAP sensor or a poor connection at the sensor. Or a bad MAP sensor itself. Maybe the vacuum line is off or broken.

Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor measures the changes in the intake manifold pressure which result from engine load and speed changes, and converts this measurement into a voltage output.

A closed throttle on when the engine is decelerating would produce a relatively low MAP output, while a wide open throttle would produce a high output. Manifold absolute pressure is the opposite of what you would measure on a vacuum gage. When manifold pressure is high, vacuum is low. The MAP sensor is also used to measure barometric pressure under certain conditions, which allows the PCM to automatically adjust for different altitudes.

The PCM sends a 5 volt reference signal to the MAP sensor. As the manifold pressure changes, the electrical resistance of the sensor also changes. By monitoring the sensor output voltage, the PCM can determine the manifold pressure. A higher pressure, low vacuum (high voltage) requires more fuel, while a lower pressure, higher vacuum (low voltage) requires less fuel.

A high or low voltage fault in the MAP sensor circuit should set a DTC P0107 or DTC P0108. If the MAP sensor sends an intermittent zero voltage signal to the PCM, a DTC P0106 will set.

What are DTC P0107 and P0108 for this vehicle?


Use your computer Google or whatever & type:

OBD PO107

Just learn how OBD2 Systems work, because codes
have nothing to do with installing parts

You have to know how the vehicles systems & components
work & how to test them

You only replace parts when you find a problem & a part fails
a test or data is not correct

You need knowledge & professional scan tool to even work
on any vehicle since 1981

I have a 2007 malibu with a 2.4 engine and the check engine light came on. I had a freind scan it at work and the scan showed a torque coverter so he cleared it and I drove it home from work and all...


You just use the codes to diagnose the problems

I have no idea why you wouldn't have the vehicle properly
scanned & diagnosed at a repair shop & resolved

If you have a torque converter code, that is the transmission &
you stop using any vehicle with trans issues & resolve

No one seems to study OBD2 Systems

They just clear all data to make the dash light
go away & so goes what you need to work on it

2008 malibu brakes sticking


As with all these car questions, guessing at
several things won't diagnose & resolve your
issues

Need a repair shop to walk down the problem
in a logical order

My personal opinion & 50 years experience ,is
neglect 95% of the time

Just driving it & never work on the brakes & system,
at least once a year, on all vehicles & you get problems
