You're very welcome editwizard (and jssamm earlier)!

Your description of yelling and laughing in your garage gave me a nice chuckle, because I think I did just about the same thing when I first looked in and saw the broken hose. It was a huge relief, since I had been having lean codes for months and my smog inspection (and therefore license tag renewal) were already expired for a month. That's when I started reading CCV replacement threads and noticed that, in those that had pictures of the old parts, hose #4 was frequently (if not always) broken. I knew that a broken CCV hose could cause those codes, so I decided to take a look to see if mine was broken, and....

It's been over 2 years now, and no further lean codes or CCV-related issues for me. I'm definitely happy I didn't have to tear my intake apart to replace that CCV! And I'm also glad the thread seems to be helping out a bunch of folks.
