What does code po106 mean?

What does code po106 mean?

P0106 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for “Manifold Air Pressure (MAP) Barometric Pressure Sensor Electric Circuit Output Range and Performance Problem”. This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation.

Is P0106 serious?

How serious is the P0106 code? Triggering a P0106 OBD-II error code is a serious problem. If there are issues with your system’s sensors giving incorrect readings, it can prevent your engine from running smoothly, including backfiring, which is a severe problem.

Does a Hyundai Sonata have a mass air flow sensor?

The average cost for a Hyundai Sonata mass airflow sensor replacement is between $228 and $420. Labor costs are estimated between $37 and $47 while parts are priced between $191 and $373. This range does not include taxes and fees, and does not factor in your specific model year or unique location.

Where is the manifold sensor located?

intake manifold
Where is the Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor Located? The MAP sensor is typically located on the intake manifold, either next to or on the throttle body itself. (On a forced-induction engine, the MAP sensor can be found on the intake tract before the turbo.

What does a MAP sensor do for your car?

A fully functioning MAP sensor is necessary to maintain the right combination of acceleration, fuel economy, emissions and engine smoothness. When the throttle is wide open and air is rushing into the intake manifold (causing a drop in pressure), the MAP sensor signals the engine computer to send more fuel.

Can you drive with a P0106?

You shouldn’t drive the vehicle until the P0106 code is resolved.

How much are mass air flow sensors?

The replacement cost of a mass air flow sensor can anywhere from $80 to $380. The cost of the part alone is about $30 to $300 with the lower end of the range for common aftermarket mass air flow sensors while higher quality or more complicated OEM sensors are more expensive.

What happens if a MAP sensor goes bad?

As the MAP sensor fails, it can cause various issues with the fuel system and vehicle performance. An inaccurate reading from the sensor will cause the computer to change the amount of fuel it sends, which can rob the engine of power or cause it to run poorly.

What happens if my MAP sensor is bad?

A faulty MAP sensor will affect an engine’s air-fuel ratio. If the ratio is incorrect, ignition inside the engine will occur at an improper time in the combustion cycle.
