Hello. I have a 2004 Suzuki XL 7. I am havind an issue with code with DTC P0449: Evaporative Emission System Vent Valve/Solenoid Circuit. I replaced the part, cleard the code and the code keeps coming back after I restart the car. I got a smoke test conducted on the emission system, and the only leakage found is around the filter part number 18581-65d00 and where the hose connection is made to the filter. In speaking with the mechanic, he stated that leakage in that area is normall and that should not give the falut code. Can you help me understand if the filter could be the root cause of the code? Is the filter suppose to bleed or is it suppose to maintain a leak proof system? As a reference I am looking at the suzuki 2004 xl7 part's catalog figure 23 page 27.
Any help would be appreciated.
