vacuum sensor

vacuum sensor
A sensor which detects changes in manifold pressure in comparison to barometric pressure; such changes indicate the need for an adjustment in air/fuel mixture and electronic spark timing to maintain efficient engine operation. Also called manifold pressure sensor, pressure differential sensor, or manifold vacuum sensor
