2003 Suzuki XL-7 Problems

An abnormal noise may develop from the timing chain due to a failed chain tensioner. This condition is generally caused by lack of oil to the timing chain guides. Suzuki may repair this condition free of charge if proper oil changes can be verified. A Rattling Type Noise May be Noted From The Front of the Engine

An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.

A icking type noise may be noted when starting the engine cold. This is commonly caused by bleed down of the hydraulic valve lifters. Our technicians recommend to make sure the engine oil is clean and at the correct level, then run the engine for 20 minutes at 2,000 rpm. If this does not correct the fault the valve lifters should be replaced.

I bought this car new with 3rd row (7 seats), and sun/tilt roof. Other than regular maintenance (break pads, oil changes), I have never had to put money into this car. It's been reliable, has never given me problems, fits a lot of people and/or things. After my son sat on the sunroof, it messed up the tracks, but that was our fault, and I am getting an entire used one, including tracks, for onl...
