Default Watch me work! (new update!!!!!)

Okay guys, looks like it'* time for me to attack my problems head on. I continue to have map sensor code (P0108, it was P0106) and now I seem to be losing some coolant. I can see some moisture underneath the map/pcv that looks like it is coming from the lower. The upper was replaced last year, but not the lower. I had a master mechanic with me then but now on my own. I want to make a road trip, but will not ride with my co-pilot and wingman if car is not right. I've got a camera and will try to post pics( not sure how to include them in post) along with journal entries. I will begin to assemble parts and tools tomorrow. I will appreciate in help and insight on this endeavor. I have done a thorough search of the site and obtained a chiltons manual. I have also purchased a torque ratchet and various sockets. Is there anything else I will need to get from the dealer beside a coolant elbow?

Okay here are some starting photos. I included some pics of the exterior so Bill can see my car of many colors. Notice the moist area just beneath that little elbow.

I started with replacing my blower motor, which turn out to be a pain to get out without unhooking that bracket. I'm trying to hold off on tearing it down just yet.

I found mine at pepboys near the radiator caps and vac fittings.
The parts guy at autozone tried to tell me it'* a dealer only part, but trust me, it'* not.

Thanks guys, I still trying to determine whether or not I should do this right now. Not sure now if coolant was properly filled and we have had some pretty hot days here in st. louis.

I've got a 3 color combo working on the outside( green body, blue/purple fender/bumper, and silver side mirrors), to go along with the 2 shades of graphite inside.
