Can the MAP sensor cause your 1992 Ford Explorer 4.0 to consume gas at about 9 miles per gallon and run bad with a lot of smoke?

Distilled water is the most harmless substance you can consume, however, it is still possible to consume it to excess, if you drink half a gallon or more at a time (which you should not do, to be clear). In moderate quantities, no, it won't cause nausea.

Chances are it is an oxygen sesor. An OBII code reader should tell you if it is the front or rear sensor. I replcaed the front O2 sensor on my Explorer last fall. Easy job too!!!

You start by identifying the cause of the fault, e.g., is the sensor itself, a wiring issue, or an ECM issue? How you go about with the actual repair depends on what the result of your diagnosis is.

Yes, the power train management computer needs input from this sensor to time the spark to each cylinder. With a bad sensor there will be no ignition and the engine won't start.
