Alright, you've done two of the five possible causes of the P0106. Check to make sure dip stick is installed fully and the O ring is still on it. Next, Listen to the engine while it is running, if you hear a whistling type noise there is probably an air leak that will need to be fixed. Check the connector for the MAP sensor and ensure that it is not corroded or loose. And finally if all of that looks good, I'd replace the throttle position sensor.If my answer has helped you, please help me by rating or accepting my answer.

The throttle sensor I take it it's on the throttlebody
I did check the connector it's all clean wires look OK I do get a reading on my snap on monitor the fluctuating of the map sensor

If I clear the code and drive it it's OK shut off come back use it and that's when the check engine light flips back on

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I think I might want to try another expert
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 8 months ago.
I'm sorry I was not online. Yes the throttle sensor is on the throttle body, it is built into the electronic throttle body. Have you checked for any air leaks? If you don't hear any you can try spraying carb clean in a mist over the engine around the intake gaskets and vacuum lines, if the idle changes you have a leak which could cause the map sensor to fluctuate. Did you use a Kia map sensor when you replaced it?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Yes it is a Kia map sensor I did spray starting fluid and I got no fluctuation in the idol

Just took this for a couple road test in the light has not came back on yet usually it would've flipped on by now
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 8 months ago.
Alright, sometimes we see oil pool up on the map sensor and that can throw a code, so maybe it just had to clear out. If the light comes back, check the map sensor for oil, and clean it if necessary. Then I'd check the throttle body actuator connection and if thats good try unhooking the battery and letting it sit for a while to reset the memory adaptives unless you are able to do that manually on your scan tool. If that still doesn't work, replace the throttle body actuator.

OK thank you I will work more with it tomorrow and let you know
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 8 months ago.
Alright sounds good.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I did notice how there was oil pooled on the old map sensor
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 8 months ago.
Yeah that could be what causes it, usually if you clean it off and reinstall it it doesn't have the issue again
