Hi, my name is Kyle and I'm an Acura expert here on JustAnswer.com. I'd be glad to help you with this problem.
Have you checked the engine for vacuum leaks yet? It sounds like you have a vacuum leak causing the problem. That calculated load value way too high. It's also possible you bad MAP sensor causing the problem as well but if it were in my stall at the dealer I work for I would be checking the engine for vacuum leaks first. Check for loose, cracked, disconnected hoses. Any noises like hissing, etc..
Let me know if you need more help.
hello kyle thanks for replying I have already checked for vacuum leaks visually and the accetaleine test after that I tried a new idle air control valve and map sensor, i am a very reputable mechanic and i do not like to push parts but i am at a dead end. if you have anymore input it would be greatly appretiated
What is the MAP reading at idle and at cruise?
this morning I checked map reading it is between 29.3 and 29.9 under all driving condidtions
