This is worryingly similar to my experiences with all car mechanics.

Take my car in. The EML light is on. Debug codes. MAP sensor is giving implausible reading. Assume sensor is faulty. Replace map sensor. Give car back to customer minus £100.

Driving out of garage EML light comes on again.

Fault was not with MAP sensor at all.

Thank god my car doesn't fly.
