OK I have a 94 SlS with 190,000 miles on it and the other when day i went to step on the gas, and it stalled. All the way to work and all the way home it did this. So, the next day I went to go start it and this amazing cloud of exhaust came out of the car, it was like New Jersey in the summer. It was consistant the whole time I had the car was on. I felt like james bond with the smoke screen on. anyway, i got the P032 code on the computer, and oh yeah, if u step on the gas it will stall. so before i get mugged at the mechanic, i would like to know, from the friendly people of this forum, what exactly does this all mean in ENGLISH. Thanks in advance. :hmm:

Check the connector to the MAP sensor. Mayb it's just corroded or loose.

I agree with the above posts, but I don't see how fuel addatives will do anything for the MAP (Manifold Air Pressure) sensor. The sensor and connections would be the first thing that I would suspect.

Since you have the code, I'd check the connections to the sensor, then clear the codes. If it comes back, I'd replace the MAP sensor.

:yeah: I'd do exactly what NickySantoro said. Fuel system treatments and throttle body cleanings won't do anything for that code. It's indicating an electrical problem. Throttle body cleaning is good to do, but it won't help with the code.
