2003 Suzuki XL-7 ProblemsA Rattling Type Noise May be Heard from the Front of the Engine
An abnormal noise from the timing chain area is likely due to a failed timing chain tensioner. This condition is generally caused by lack of oil to the timing chain guides and the guides will need replacement.
The check engine light can illuminate and set a P0008 trouble code when this issue occurs. This is due to the Camshaft and Crankshaft Sensors detecting that the engine timing is out of specification.
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.
