Bad motor mount can cause MAP sensor vacuum hose to weaken or pull off on Ford Taurus

Bad motor mounts can cause the motor to move excessively, which pulls on the MAP sensor vacumn hose every time you step on the gas pedal. This either weakens the hose so it collapses (causing low vacuum flow) or pulls the vacuum hose that connects the intake manifold to the MAP sensor completely off of the sensor. When the hose is disconnected from the MAP sensor, a full rich condition will result.
