My colt was running fine till the check engine light came on and my car
started spurtting and it cut off ,you can crank it back up but it will
shut off in about 5 mins , you can crank about one more time then when it
shuts off , it won't crank up till maybe an hour later. Everything on the
car is original so I started with the fuel filter changed that and nothing
still does the same. Someone said check the MAP sensor but I have no idea
where that's located at . So any help I'll greatly appreciate thanks.

The map sensor is in the air filter housing. When you pull off the
front of the housing there is an assembly attached that contains the
map. That said, you can't test it. But, you can read the computer with
just an analog meter. You know, the old kind with a needle instead of
digital readout. Don't use a light. It may draw too much current and
damage the computer. Get a manual at to library or buy one and it will
tell you how to read the engine codes. It's easy. It's also too long
to post here. At least it's too long for me to type it all out.
