    Hey everyone first post in this section but i'm looking at buying a 93 2.3 hatch.

    The idle on the car moves up and down and it is also high. about 1600 rps. If I turn the A/C on it goes down to about 1200 rpms. Also the check engine light is on. I tried to do the codes test and I got a 126 code which says online that it is a BP or MAP sensor is too high or too low. Any help...
