seals orings spigots
The seal I referred to is Suzuki part 09280-18009 which they call an o-ring.The hoses from the thermostat to the motor (17853-19f00) are mounted to fittings which have a seal or o-ring between themselves and the motor.THere is only a hole in the motor otherwise. The fitting is attached via a single bolt.The attachment is weak and If the seal deteriorates it invites a leak.
Looking at the radiator hose section of the microfiche is worth a thousand words.
Also, for whatever reason the coolant bars lingered longer at 2 afterward, rather than thier typical three.Then again the fuel bars are also schewed.
