Post by shaun_469 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 12:06 pm

Hi everyone, I’m probably being blind, but I can’t seem to find my MAP sensor...can someone point me in the right direction please!

Thanks in advance! Shaun

I think it is next to the fuse box on my '88 car, and is definitely in that section of the engine bay.
Hope this helps!

Not blind! The Turbo set up doesn't have one and instead has a MAF (Mass Air Flow) meter

Cheers for the replies guys, will have a look later, I’m sure I’ve seen it had one, and I’m also sure it’s listed on eurocarparts as a spare....will have a look anyway!

Don't cheer too early, it's inside the ECU EZ210K. Next questions: Location? Under the upholstry at your left leg. How's that? Sitting in the drivers seat.

Sounding like a big job :D only wanted to try it on a different car I have, they apparently share the same map sensor and the other car is playing up...is it removeable from the ecu??
