Does code 14 (MAP sensor) match the problems Im having?
This is my first Jeep. 97 Cherokee Sport with 150,000 miles. I got it as something to fix up. Wasn’t running when I bought it. It was missing the following parts I put in. But in new fuel pump, fuel filter, alternator, starter, spark plugs-wires-cap-rotor, radiator, thermostat, intake manifold, throttle body, battery and tires. It runs now put having issues. When I start it idles high 2500-3000 for 20 seconds or so then drops down to around 1000, it’s hard to start I have to give it gas while starting, exhaust smells strong, hesitates when I accelerate, sometimes it stalls while idling (but rarely stalls after a couple minutes of running) . BUT when I get to about 40+ mph it runs dam good as long as I don’t accelerate hard! Code 14 shows up (MAP sensor). SO does all that happen when a MAP sensor is bad?? Ive spent a lot of money already so just want to see what’s the issue before I spend more.
OH, sorry forgot one. My catalytic converter is also bad. I bought a new one just haven’t had the time to put it on.
