2003 Suzuki XL-7 Problems

A Rattling Type Noise May be Noted From The Front of the Engine

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

Revised Seal to Correct Leak at Right Front Axle

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.

Ticking Type Noise From Engine After Cold Start

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.
