CEL Error P0106?

My friend's 2006 2.2 automatic cobalt throws this code once in a while after getting on gas.... what is it and what are the solutions to resolve the issue?

Service Information
2006 Chevrolet Cobalt | Cobalt, Pursuit (VIN A) Service Manual | Document ID: 1589307
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DTC P0106
Circuit Description
The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor that resides in the engine intake manifold is integrated with the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 2. The purpose of this integrated sensor is to measure the following:

The atmospheric pressure and the vacuum or the reduced pressure that exists under different operating conditions in the engine intake manifold

The supercharged air pressure that exists under high load or wide open throttle conditions in the engine intake manifold

The IAT sensor 2 after the supercharger and the intercooler as it enters the engine intake manifold

The IAT sensor 2 after the supercharger bypass valve and the intercooler as it enters the engine intake manifold

The MAP/IAT sensor 2 has the following types of circuits:

A powertrain control module (PCM) supplied and regulated MAP 5-volt reference circuit

A PCM supplied ground for the low reference circuit that is shared by the MAP and the IAT sensor 2

A MAP sensor signal circuit that supplies a voltage input to the PCM

A PCM supplied 5-volt, IAT signal circuit

The diaphragm within the MAP sensor responds to all of the various pressure changes in the intake manifold and provides a signal voltage to the PCM on the signal circuit relative to those pressure changes.

The PCM monitors the MAP sensor signal for voltage that is outside of the normal range of a properly operating sensor. If the PCM detects a MAP sensor signal that is not within range of a calibrated limit of the estimated value, DTC P0106 sets.

DTC Descriptor
This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:

DTC P0106 Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor Performance

Conditions for Running the DTC
DTCs P0107, P0108, P0120, P0121, P0220, P0506, P0507, P2135 are not set.

The engine speed is between 400-6,400 RPM.

The engine coolant temperature (ECT) is between 70-125C (158-257F).

The IAT is between -7 to +125C (+19 to +257F).

The change in throttle position (TP) is less than 5 percent.

The above enabling criteria must be stable for more than 5 seconds.

DTC P0106 runs continuously when the above conditions are met.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
The PCM detects that the MAP sensor signal is 25 kPa more than the calibrated estimate for more than 90 seconds.

OR

The PCM detects that the MAP sensor signal is 45 kPa less than the calibrated estimate for more than 90 seconds.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets
The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and fails.

The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The first time the diagnostic fails, the control module stores this information in the Failure Records. If the diagnostic reports a failure on the second consecutive ignition cycle, the control module records the operating conditions at the time of the failure. The control module writes the operating conditions to the Freeze Frame and updates the Failure Records.

Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC
The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail.

A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes.

A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic.

Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.

1
Did you perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle?
--
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle

2
Inspect for the following conditions:

Any disconnected, damaged, or incorrectly routed vacuum hoses

Any damage or fractures to the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor housing

A missing or damaged MAP sensor seal

Restrictions or debris in the MAP sensor vacuum port

An Intake manifold vacuum leak

Did you find and correct the condition?
--
Go to Step 22
Go to Step 3

3
Important: The following sensors share a bused low reference circuit within the powertrain control module (PCM) and a common ground. A high resistance on that shared portion will shift both sensors.

Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Observe the MAP Sensor parameter with a scan tool.
Observe the BARO parameter with a scan tool.
Compare the values.
Is the difference between the MAP Sensor parameter and the BARO parameter more than the specified value?
5 kPa
Go to Step 10
Go to Step 4

4
Important: The Altitude vs. Barometric Pressure table indicates a pressure range for a given altitude under normal weather conditions. Weather conditions consisting of very low or very high pressure and/or very low or very high temperature may cause a reading to be slightly out of range.

Accurately determine the altitude for your location.
Observe the MAP Sensor kPa parameter with a scan tool.
The MAP Sensor parameter should be within the specified pressure range for your altitude. Refer to Altitude Versus Barometric Pressure.
Is the MAP Sensor parameter within the specified range as indicated on the Altitude vs. Barometric Pressure table?
--
Go to Step 5
Go to Step 10

Observe the MAP Sensor kPa parameter with a scan tool.
Start the engine.
Does the MAP Sensor kPa parameter decrease?
--
Go to Step 6
Go to Step 10

6
Turn OFF the ignition.
Remove the MAP sensor from the engine intake manifold. Leave the MAP sensor connected to the engine harness.
Connect a vacuum pump to the MAP sensor.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Observe the MAP Sensor parameter with a scan tool.
Apply vacuum to the MAP sensor in 1 inch Hg increments until 15 inches Hg is reached. Each 1 inch Hg should decrease the MAP Sensor parameter by 3-4 kPa.
Is the decrease in the MAP Sensor parameter consistent?
--
Go to Step 7
Go to Step 10

7
Apply vacuum with the vacuum pump until 20 inches Hg is reached.
