Default P0171 and MAP sensor

I have been getting this error code for sometime now. It will come on for a few cycles and then go off for a week or so. I know it is the bank 1 running lean error. I had the O2 sensor replaced with OEM not too long ago as well as new plugs and wires. The car does tend to act sluggish when accelerating and it jerks every now and then at cruising speed. It will randomly stall out on me when I come to a stop every now and then too.

I was thinking this was possibly a MAP sensor going bad as it has a lot of the symptoms associated with that. Can anyone tell me how you know if the sensor is going bad without simply purchasing a new one?
