What is the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor (MAP Sensor) all about?

In order to operate, your engine needs a combination of air, fuel and spark. Today’s engines are much more complex, and require sophisticated measuring of different elements to ensure proper fuel combustion. The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor is responsible for some of these tasks.

Your MAP sensor measures the amount of air entering the manifold, the air temperature, and the number of revolutions in the engine. With this information, the car’s computer can adjust fuel and airflow to maximize performance while minimizing fuel consumption.

If your engine is not fuel injected, you probably do not have a MAP sensor. However, the vast majority of engines on the road today are fuel injected. For some automakers, the MAP sensor also serves a diagnostic function, allowing mechanics to analyze the performance of the EGR valve.

Keep in mind:

  • The MAP sensor is an electronic component, and can fail unexpectedly.
  • It is impossible to determine if the manifold absolute pressure sensor has failed with a visual inspection – it will require an experienced mechanic to diagnose the issue.
  • A failing MAP sensor will trigger the Check Engine light.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle hood is raised and supported
  • The defective manifold absolute pressure sensor is removed
  • The new manifold absolute pressure sensor is installed
  • The computer is tested and codes cleared with a scanner
  • The vehicle hood is closed and road tested for proper operation

Our recommendation:

While a failed MAP sensor won’t disable your car, it’s strongly recommended that you have it diagnosed and replaced as quickly as possible. Driving with a failing or failed MAP sensor can cause your engine to run “rich” or “lean” – that is, with either too much fuel, or too much air. Both of these conditions can damage the engine. However, there are many other conditions that can mimic a failed MAP sensor, including relatively minor vacuum leaks, so it’s important that one of our expert mechanics check the malfunction code and thoroughly inspect the engine.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor (MAP Sensor)?

  • Erratic or rough idling
  • Delay in acceleration or deceleration
  • Check Engine light is on
  • Excess exhaust emissions resulting in failed emissions test

How important is this service?

Your engine’s MAP sensor is an important piece of technology, and should be replaced immediately to avoid potentially damaging your engine with lean or rich operating conditions and to ensure you’re able to pass your emissions test. If you notice any of the symptoms above, or your Check Engine light is on, have your vehicle diagnosed by one of our expert mechanics.

Volvo C30 L5-2.5L Turbo - Control Arm Assembly Replacement (Rear Lower Left, Rear Lower Right) - Waltham, Massachusetts
He was a pleasure to deal with, knowledgeable and 100% took the time to answer my questions. Was skeptical about using whole online sevice but by the end of the job, I felt reassured and booked him for a repeat job a few days later. Wanted to drive car first to "test things out" from first set or repairs before making any decesion. Obviously both he and the work he did pased the test. Not an eay task in this day and age to find a mechanic you are actually willing to believe the repairs they say are needed actually DO NEED to be done. I am on my 4th Volvo and have delt with enough dishonest dealerships to last me a lifetime and then some! What he may lack in perceived years of being in the biz (5 years verses a 10 plus year mechanic) by no means reflects on his aptitude, ability to get the work done in a timely manner or overall hands on experience with import cars.... he knows his stuff!

I can put positive imput about Andrew but was not on location, but the communication from Andrew was timely and informative and judging by what the dealer had to say he seems to be very thorough.
