comment How to fix Accord 1998 EX V6 OBD-II trouble code “P0108” — MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) Pressure Circuit High Input?
David, it depends on the type of signal the MAP sensor is putting out, but you'd need the exact specs to check if the measurements that you're seeing are within reason. The OEM workshop manual might show the procedure, or a Honda-specific forum might have a detailed description of it.

comment oil leaks when driving, not while parked
The easiest way to find out if it's burning oil might be to drive behind it for a little while and get the passenger to watch the tailpipe. Sometimes cars can blow a lot of oil out the tailpipe before it becomes visible to the driver.

comment My car has the wrong coolant in it. Now what?
I'm not a particular fan of Dexcool anyway, so I wouldn't necessarily recommend going back to it. If you have the sludge that you get in the cooling system if it's been mixed with regular coolant, the whole system has to be flushed to clear out traces of the old coolant and the sludge before you can put either coolant in. That might solve your overheating problems if it's done properly, but it's quite labor intensive and thus not cheap. OTOH you'll never get rid of the sludge by other means.

comment Car enthusiast beginner kit
+1 for mentioning the torque wrench, that counteracts the "gorilla with a toothache" syndrome when it comes to tightening fasteners. I would also add regular mechanics gloves to the list as they provide some additional protection in case the tool slips off and you hit the only sharp edge in the vicinity.

comment Doing my own fuel induction service - how to, and how difficult?
+1 for the SeaFoam recommendation - that's what I'd do rather than paying someone for an 'injection service'.
