Did you check the wiring to the mass air flow sensor?

I looked at the wiring and did not see anything obvious but hopefully this weekend I will take a closer look and read them out. I'm heading out to the parking lot now to see if I can find the MAP, it's the only thing not changed out yet, besides the computer. If I think it is where the arrow is pointing I thought it was the controls for the heating and cooling dampner. But will look again.

REMOVAL

1. Disconnect negative battery cable.
2. Disconnect vacuum source from manifold absolute pressure sensor.
3. Remove fasteners attaching manifold absolute pressure sensor and bracket assembly below cowl drip rail.

INSTALLATION

To install, reverse removal procedure.

NOTE: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles or more to relearn the adaptive strategy.graphic

There is a vacuum hose to where your picture points , so does that mean the sensor is under the shroud?
Ford Mechanic: Tim West, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
No, I'm pretty sure it's on the friewall.

I just looked and it is not anywhere on the firewall. The only 2 vacuum hoses that go to that area are one to the dampner and the other to inside the duct work shroud which i believe is something for the A/C controls, it also has no wires near it. I have traced every vacuum line out and non go to a sensor I have not identified. Thanks Dean

You are looking passenger side firewall?

Yes and the only 2 lines as I said go to the dampner control and to something inside that shroud around the a/c evaporator.

Okay, here is another picture of it.
<h2 class="float-left">
<p id="hd1-1-1"></p>OPERATION</h2><br><br><p>The B/MAP sensor used on some engines is separate from the barometric sensor and is located on the left fender panel in the engine compartment. The barometric sensor signals the PCM of changes in atmospheric pressure and density to regulate calculated air flow into the engine. The MAP sensor monitors and signals the PCM of changes in intake manifold pressure which result from engine load, speed and atmospheric pressure changes.</p><p>
The Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor measures the pressure in the intake manifold and sends a variable frequency signal to the PCM. When the ignition is
<i>ON</i>
and the engine
<i>OFF</i>

, the MAP sensor will indicate the barometric pressure in the intake manifold.
