Thumbs Up boost pressure care share

Hi all title is abit strange but relevant to what i had.
Give my gt jtd the beans one day and joy of joys the engine managment light came on in a slight panic tootled home and sat playing with the bluetooth scanner through the torque app on android.
Po237 boost pressure code was showing .erased the annoying light and popped the hood.
Im no italian specialist but got the tools out to look cool anyway.
My find was the m.a.p sensor on the rear of intake once removed absolutely sealed off with oily black crap ,one can of break cleaner later and abit of delicate cleaning (mind the sensor) all done car pulls better no warning light when u accelerate hard and my m.p.g has gone up a tad.
Hope this might be of use to someone out there.

common problem mate. the problem is that it's not just when you "give it the beans"!

If you found this to be a cure, get yourself some new gaskets for the EGR (few quid) and take the EGR off and clean that and the map again and when you come to refit the EGR, stick on the new gaskets. There's a vid on youtube for taking the EGR off but please make sure you leave it soaking overnight to make sure it is gleaming!

the light came on, on mine too but it wasn't the map or the EGR...dunno what it was but it went out and stayed out. However, I do regularly clean the EGR and MAP.
