So while replacing the sparkplugs, I broke a tab that holds a pressure sensor in place. What is this pressure sensor for?

Pressure sensor is removed and in green circle, the pink/red nipple plugs into the red arrow hole. I broke the left retainer. Looks just like the right side. It appears that this pressure sensor plugs into something that can be removed from the Upper Intake Manifold (UIM)
Thoughts?




Side question- Is there a FSM for this car anywhere? I love those things and this car is starting to accumulate mileage and would be needed in the future.
I thoroughly enjoy reading the one for my Nissan Xterra. I suppose I am odd like that.

That's your MAP sensor if I'm correct. That part that you broke is replaceable seperate from the intire UIM luckily. I'm unsure of the part number or where to get one.

By FSM do you mean factory service manual? IffyG had one for sale in the classifieds section for a good price, not sure if he still has it.

That's the PCV valve that the sensor is on. I'm not sure why it needs a sensor though. You'll be fine to drive without the sensor on, but you may eventually get a check engine light.

If I remember correctly you get the whole top piece that the sensor sits in and PCV valve if you buy it at the dealer. You just twist that top and lift off. Never hurts to replace the PCV valve anyway since you'll have it out. Oh, and you'll get a new O-ring as well. Just make sure it's all seated correctly or it will make a horrendous squeeling noise.

No, you won't be fine driving around without it there, I'm pretty sure that's gonna open up a pretty huge vac leak. It detects the air pressure in your manifold, so I believe if you take it off, you are letting unmetered air into the system, which is bad.

Its your MAP sensor, and it affects fueling. So there's another reason not to run without it.

Yes, it's the MAP sensor, but the mount comes with the PCV valve when you buy it at the dealer. I wasn't saying to drive it forever like that, just long enough to get the part.

I suppose to go to the parts store to get the part.. But as little as possible, its really not a good idea.

I didn't mean to come in here and tell you you're wrong and piss you off, I just don't want another member to think its "fine" to drive around like that.

I'm not pissed. You're right, and I should have worded it better.
