You either need to check the wiring to the MAP sensor, or your MAP sensor itself needs to be replaced.

Moved to 92-99. Please don't post Mechanical problems in Performance and Brainstorming (please take the time to read the section descriptions before posting).

Please also refer to the signature policy in NOTICE.

Map sensor is going to be in the intake manifold, up top, passenger side. IIRC, it'* the only sensor on the composite intake.

The vacuum line being broken or disconnected would also cause it to read barometric.

No vac lines on the series 2 L36 Wren. It'* directly coupled to the intake manifold. Though...a leaky o-ring could do it.

Right. My goof. I actually knew that.

Packed on top of the PCV. IIRC, those plastic tabs are prone to breaking with age. Try some zip-ties to hold it on tighter and see if it solves the problem.

I ran into that on EK98'* top-end work last summer.
