    Hi there, I bought my 1990 Sidekick with a 1.6L 8V, Auto, 4x4 a couple years ago and have now started to go through all the issues with it.

    I had a mechanic look at my 1991 Sidekick, because it was surging on warm idle. He figured out that it was either the thermal sensor or the MAP sensor. I have the thermal sensor on order, but the MAP sensor was really expensive. The cheapest price I found was 445.00 CAD, because it has to be...
