Could be the MAP, but maybe a few other things as well:I keep getting this code 2188. If the MAP sensor is bad, where can I get one? Is there a way to test it first?
Went to local mechanic twice and the dealer once. Dealer charged me 200$ and didn't do a damn thing. Local mechanic cleared the code for nothing.
It happens about once a week now.
I bought my own code reader. I checked on the net, nobady has the part and the pics on evilution don't help on locating it on the engine.
So, have a good idea what is wrong but can't find it or buy it.
The man may not be a idiot but he certainly does not know what he is talking about. He does not know how the system works, what the proper parts functions are or how to properly diagnose it. He is right about the engine being a big air pump, but that is about all.Could be the MAP, but maybe a few other things as well: 2008 Smart Car Check Engine Light P2188 Code - YouTube
Might also be caused by overfilling the fuel tank and saturating the evap canister: http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f25/cel-code-p2188-42987/ (post #6)
2008 Smart Car Check Engine Light P2188 Code | How To Make & Do Everything!I'm having the recurring P2188 error on my 2008 Passion. First repair was an inline filter or valve ($300+). It came back. I needed to pass an emissionscheck, so the light had to be off and code cleared. $1200+ later I passed e-check only because the e-check station was right across the street from the dealership. Within a week, the CEL and P2188 weree back. Before I have to go for my next e-check I need to get this fixed, but I can't keep spending this kind of money. Any ideas?
