    MAP sensor cleaning

    Truck has 46k miles on it now. Anyone here pull the MAP sensor located on top of the intake plenum and clean it with throttle body cleaner? Any improvements?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have heard of a couple people doing it throughout the forums. It helped fix their drivability issues. One was reading too high of boost and another was a bit of a shudder.

    My MAP is held in place by a single screw/bolt on the driver's side. The passenger side of the MAP has a hole for a second screw, but the intake plenum looks like it isn't tapped for that second screw. Do others have the same setup?

    I vaguely remember something about another person worried about the second screw not tapped issue. It was found to be normal the way that you just described.

    I just pulled out and cleaned all 3 of mine. I kept getting a P012D code that would pop back up after a hundred miles or so. The one on the intake pipe right by the air cleaner needs a star bit socket to pull the stud holding that MAP sensor in place. The one right before the throttle body has 2 torx bit screws holding the sensor in place. And finally the one on top of the intake manifold has 1 8mm screw holding it in place. I just cleaned them with maf sensor cleaner in a spray can and blew them out with air really good. So far the code hasn't come back. The sensors by the throttle body and on the intake manifold were really oily.

    Suggestions to get this caked on and dried oil off the map sensor?

    I wonder if you could safely fill an ultrasonic eyeglass cleaner with MeOH/Isopropanol/similar and clean it that way.
