ill have to look in some stuff in a little bit, pm me ur shipping info and ill let u have it, i think for the entire hose its only like $10 or so at the most, but ill get this one out to you unless you want a brand new one, i can get the pn and give that to you, just pay shippin and itll be there, also if you get it from the dealer it comes with the entire tube and elbow on the other side for the evap solenoid, FYI

ko, just let me know, i have the entire pipe also and i think i have the elbow, the elbow for the evap is brand new, but the pipe and elbow for the pcv i had used for about a year, when the evap elbow started deteriorating then i just got the whole new set and took the old one off, but i got some more elbows i think...let me know

EDIT:

ok well i found it, but my elbow for the pcv is cracked also, not huge but enough to be noticeable and may grow, ill get the pn for u then u can see if you can get it at a good price, if you cant i can get it fairly cheap since i have a good discount...again let me know

Seriously just do what i did. Take out the PCV elbow and take it with you to the parts store. Look at the 90 degree spark plug boots and find one that is close to the size of the inlets on the PCV valve. They are cheap as hell, i think i bought a bunch at like 50 cents apiece.

well those elbows are made of a different compound than the PCV elbows, and they might either deteriorate or chunks might fall into the valve, i would just go to the dealer and get it, i didnt get the pn today, but ill get it tomorrow

As long as they are heat resistant, oil resistant and solvent resistant they will work fine, spark plug boots meet all those requirments. They arent going to just fall appart. They will last just as long if not longer than the actual PCV valve elbow. You can spend $10+ at the dealer or buy a 50 cent spark plug boot.
