It could.
The map sensor measures engine vac and sends data to the computer to help regulate fuel mixture.
The sensor would need to be tested before you replace it. The code does not mean the sensor has failed.

While the hood is open. Rn the engine with a helper operating the gas pedal and e-brake locked. Place the car in D and then R while you are watching the engine from the side. Have the helper step on the gas in each of the gears and watch what happens to the engine. If the engine jumps around,, then you have other mounts that are broken and need replacing.

My Toyota Camry 1993 has a few problems. First off when I accelerate it jerks back then goes and sometimes when I let off on the gas pedal it will jerk back again as it slows down. Also my gas pedal...

Examine your engine mounts and the 'dogbone' at the top right of the engine. The jerking symptoms you describe do sound like a failed mount. The front lower mount is a hydraulic cushion type, and the chief sign of failure is oil leakage from it.

As to the wobbliness and bumpy ride, that sounds like the front suspension struts need replacement. You need good quality spring compressors to try that job yourself.

It is a crude test, but if you can easily bounce the front corners of the car up and down, and it keeps bouncing when you let go, then the struts are worn out.

03 nissan altima jerks when put in drive also while driving it jerks. Also makes squeeking noise on passenger side

This that would be the correct fix. The bad mounts can lead to axle shaft wear, and linkages etc. to bind up. Not good for the driveline either.

VW Jetta MKIV - G68 sensor replacement - how to lower transmission?

Use a floor jack or trolley jack under the transmission. Also use a block of wood if you have the jack on the transmission's lower pan. You will see that the whole engine and transaxle assembly will tilt down somewhat with the transmission mount removed. If it is not enough to replace the sensors, raise the jack back up and take off that dogbone, then lower the whole thing again until you can get to the sensors. Be careful when getting the mounts back on, that the engine and transaxle settle down perfectly into the mounts, so you have no vibration issues.

1992 lexus es 30 jerks when pulling off

does sound like a mounting type symptom i would get the engine and transmission mounting points checked ASAP as could be damaging the chassis,or even the mounting points on the engine/gearbox which could cost a fair amount to replace , the other possability is the drive shaft may have to much free play and at start of movement it could cause a jerk ,this again would need looking at very soon as could be causing damage to the drive train etc

The support (dogbone) on the motor mount is cracked

This usually happens when the motor mount near the firewall goes bad, this will allow the motor to move more causing the dog bone to crack, both of these mounts should be replaced.

MY mechanic said my motor mount was broken (dogbone). I was a mechanic before I was a carpenter, can I replace this?

yes you can, fairly easy fix usually. requires you to get a new mount, support motor with jack and undo motor mount bolts, raise motor off the mount, replace mount, lower motor back into position, resecure motor mount bolts, and your done. usually just the rubber gets worn out on those things, pretty common.
