If you replace the CCV, do the OFHG at the same time. It's very easy, inexepensive (less than $10) and removing the oil filter housing makes it much easier to get to the CCV. The OFHG is a got a limited life expectancy because of its design , so even if it's not leaking now, it will sooner or later. Consider it preventative maintenance.
