P0106 Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) System Performance

ok our car does not have a MAP so thats screwed, is it smart enough to be sensing the emanage one and thats why its throwing the error?

car runs fine but the CEL drives me nuts

On The MSP perhaps. I have never seen it anywhere and my car has been completely seperated from itself...

Yes we have a map/baro sensor. It is located behind the passengerside strut tower. It has a vacuum line routed to the intake manifold directly above the altenator. It is the one that has a hose connected to itself.

That is so funny, I removed it three years ago... :p

yeah Azian6er said last night thats what he thought as well, I will have a look at it and see

I took the thing off when I was putting my strut bar on and maybe one of the wires - hoses is loose or something

I'm having this same code. Checked the MAP/BRO sensor, and I don't have a tube there at all. Must have been lost when I swapped in the new motor. I'm lost to as where it connects to, though. I took a picture of where I think it goes based on what I read.

Rogue - it connects basically in the area that you highlighted. put your hand down there around the VICS/VTCS solenoids on the IM, towards the bottom, and you'll feel the nipple sticking out.

you are correct. the car has one bar mitsubishi map sensor near the strut bar mount on the passenger side.

That second pic, that's not where it connects. You need to be under the car to see the nipple underneath the main runners. I noticed that this vacuum line was disconnected. It's tough because whenever you replace the intake you need to tape it to the top so it doesn't get lost underneath. I also noticed that this vacuum line had a cover on it, for either heat or to prevent it from getting cut.
