Default pt cruiser dies right after starting

i own a 2004 pt cruiser 2.2L

the MAP sensor went off a couple weeks ago. my car was sputtering out like it was chocking. hard time to stay running. now it wont start with out pressing the accelerator.

i finally was able to keep it running by starting the car with out the hose that leads from my PCV valve to my intake. my first thought was maybe the PCV valve was not operating properly. But as soon as i put the hose back on it dies instently On the other hand my buddy says it sounds like its running rich, cuz my car was able to stay running with that large ammount of extra air going through my engine.

any thoughts please
