MAP sensor

My engine light is on. I went to auto store and they checked it. The code is P0106 which is related to MAP sensor. Sometimes I have to put my foot on the accelerator while starting the car to get it going. Could it need a MAP sensor replacement

A false P0106 can sometimes happen when a disconnected battery is reconnected. However, there are normally no associated performance issues associated with the code, so in your case this could be an actual fault code. A false P0106 will be reset and disappear after a few drive cycles, so if it isn't gone in a week or so, then it's probably an true fault code.
