I get an occasional CEL (every few weeks/months) and whenever the CEL is on my gas mileage suffers badly. I can get the CEL to come on after a while of driving with the cruise control on. When I scanned the code I got a P0106 error. I went to the dealer, talked to them about the issue (to see where the MAP sensor was located), ordered a new MAP sensor but by the time it was delivered .... the CEL went off and I am having no more troubles. The hoses look pretty good and I dont have a any stalling or hesitation when accelerating so I doubt its a vacuum issue. I have been reading about a MAF (not MAP) sensor that could cause this code but wanted to make sure of what was what before I go about changing out expensive sensors.
What are the tell-tale signs of a bad MAP sensor?
And how does that differ from a bad MAF sensor?
Any advice would be appreciated.
