Default OBD Code PO108 ( Looking for a repair shop in georgia)

Howdy everyone! I wasn't that sure if this is the right place to thread this up. I was just looking for some assistance. As an experienced mechanic, i could do some sort of repair job but i could not handle all of them. That's why im here. So here's the issue: When trying to restart the car it turns over, but doesn't start. checked the gas, oil, fuses, and couldn't find the problem. The plugs were really old so they were replaced to, but still nothing. We got an OBD scanner and it returned the code p0108 for the MAp sensor. Since then i had replaced the Crank sensor and the cam shaft sensor and we still aren't getting a spark. It just wants to turn over but no ignition. We tried switching the relays to see if maybe one was messed up but that didn't work. Is there something i'd missing? Looking for a shop here in georgia that could handle such thing. this is the first time im on this...owned this guy for years and want to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Somewhat unrelated but you do know that you can bring up any and all CEL codes up without a tool right?

Do the key dance which consists of inserting your key into the ignition and then (without starting it); ON>OFF>ON>OFF>ON. Your odometer will cycle through current engine codes a few seconds at a time. Once it's done cycling through the codes, or if there aren't any, you'll receive 'done'

P0108 as you stated is a MAP code indicating high voltage. This CAN lead to a "crank but no start" condition, like you said. First things to look at: obviously the MAP, but also check for vacuum leaks.

If nothing looks out of place, get ready to break out your multimeter. Follow this:

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0108 Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor High Voltage

Are you sure the valves are going up and down. Belt broke, ignition relay, cranksensor makes it spark, cranksensor turns on fuel pump.

Yeah, i cant figure out why my crank sensor keeps going bad. i have put two in there in the last 3 weeks. i dont understand. i have checked the bearings and the thrust bearing and they are all good.

If it was mine I would do two things. Replace the map sensor. Pull the asd fuse and clean its bottom end and the housing it plugs into.

Are you using oem crank sensors?
