Understand. I am on my way to do a diagonostic now. I have seen on this forum where a simple test can be conducted to determine the voltage from the PCM. According to this forum and the shop manual (which are basically the same) the C51-2-18 terminal should exhibit a 10 to 14 Volt reading.
The steps are outline below. Keep in mind this is without the use of what the manufacture calls a Suzuki scan tool. I guess they figure not everyone will have that scan tool. I know I don't and I have priced one and they are quite expensive.
So in detail the steps from the manual are as follows.
A) Remove ECM cover and disconnect connectors from ECM with the ignition switch turned off.
B) Check for proper connection to vent valve at C51-2-18 terminal.
C) If OK, measure voltage at C51-2-18 terminal of ECM connector disconnected with ignition switch turned On.
The voltage should between 10-14 V.
Regarding my initial question, should there be leakage around the filter?
By-the-way, I really appreciate all the responses.
Being a mechanical engineer, I have diagnosed and solved some very intricate problems on my car which the dealer could not solve. Put simply, in the past, I showed them how to fix my car.
This problem here has me a little stumped.
