    Hello Paul,

    Do you have plans to make a video on replacing the MAP sensor for 2.5 engines? I’ve searched you tube and there is only one video on replacing the MAP sensor on a 2.5 ltr engine and it only shows the location.

    I currently have have a 2012 JSW that has a P106 code. The dealer told me I had to replace the MAP sensor. What I have discovered is the throttle body unit has to be removed but no other sound advice.

    The only video I discovered is this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1XUw7EKqtGM

    and it seems like you guys could most definitely do a better job!
