he check engine light went o he installed a map sensor. after driving my Jetta, the check engin light is back on. I paid $250.00 for labor and installation of the map sensor. I googled all different websites that sell map sensors and all of them are under the retail price of $83.00 and under the sale price (which auto body shops get) for under $40.00. Any advice from anyone out there? I'm assuming I got ripped off price wise (no getting around that it seems unless you're a friend of the owner or mechanic (Medford FastLube) but now that the check engine light is on I'm wondering from any motor heads out there what your thoughts might be. Any feedback/advice is greatly appreciated. I now have to go back and drop off my car on a Saturday and wait three hours for twenty minutes of actual labor.

he i think took you for a ride for your money. He basicly wiped your cars computer codes and did not fix your issue. Most car shops do not have hte proper diagnostic tools to diagnose an audi or vw engine light issue. Take your car to a vw and audi specialist and have it scaned and diagnosed properly. as for the map sensor you coulda jsut had that cleaned rather then replaced.
