what are common symptoms of bad a MAP sensor?

How common is it for them to go bad?

What are common symptoms of a bad MAP sensor?

Is the MAP sensor something that degrades over time?

Is aftermarket a OK replacement for a MAP sensor or Mopar only?

Symptoms for a bad MAP Sensor would be comparable to an old vacuum advance on a distributor. The timing retards because the ECM thinks demand is low (typical failure is low).I've never had one go bad on any of my Jeeps. Aftermarket one is fine.

I hope I dont sound like a knob, but symptoms of a MAP sensor could be gas mileage, and other issues. I considered changing mine just to prevent issues. I got a good deal, I work at a store, sometimes its hit or miss, but something this important can help before the code sets off. I just dont kwno where it is

A bad map sensor or even a small leak at the rubber tube underneath it can cause symptoms similar to a bad O2 sensor and may in some circumstances trip an O2 code. Rough running and gas mileage worsening are potential symptoms.
