It'* just a vacuum connector. I think its 5/16" and 1/8". I doubt anyone has them. Including the dealer. Best thing I could offer is to goto the HELP section at Autozone and try to duplicate that connector by looking through all the vac fittings.

Great guys thank you! I'm going thru some financial issues and can't afford to do anything to the car...For the cooling system I just release the pressure every day lol, and I taped up the vacum connector. Plus I tried to glue the broken piece on the intake manifold where the MAP sensor connects...didnt work I think that is why I am getting a rough idle and the map code. Just a mess right now and with the hollidays comming up....ya but thanks you guys for all your help!

dont really see tape working, i put mine together with silicone until the dealer got the rubber pieces and that seemed to work. you can spray carb cleaner around the connections and listen for the engine to change pitch

Did a pressure test of the coolant system. After running it at 1200 rpm for 15 min almost 80 psi!

I'm still suspecting a head gasket leak.

I would have to agree with mike and say it sounds like a head gasket.
