I have a 95 Eclipse GS no turbo. I have been having problems with bad idle. It surges as high as 3000 RPM at times. I replaced the AIC motor, changed vacum lines incase it was a leak causing the problem. Today I found that the intake manifold has lot’s of sludge inside, it occurred to me to check the MAP sensor. I pulled the sensor and used a Q-TIP to clean it out. I ended up pushing the q-tip all the way to the soft part inside the sensor. Once I re installed it I could no longer start my car. It stalls out and only stays on if I hold the gas down. The computer is giving me MAP sensor error code 14 now too.
Did I damage the sensor or could it simply be that the o-rings on the sensor no longer seal right and this is causing the sensor problem? I did NOT push hard when I was cleaning the sensor.

Check and make sure the wiring is connected properly to the map sensor. If it is hooked up right and still has the problem replace the map sensor. If you will let your car warm up before you go it won’t sludge up.
