2007 Suzuki XL-7 Problems

Timing Chain Tensioner May Fail

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

Valve Lifter Noise 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.

2007 Suzuki XL-7 Recalls

Potential Fuel Leak

One of the fuel line connections at the fuel pump module can crack, and if this were to occur, a fuel leak would develop from the fuel tank area. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Because of this, Xl-7 models first sold or currently registered in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Texas are being recalled. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern.

Windshield Improperly Mounted

The windshield may have been installed improperly from the factory. This creates a higher risk for occupant injury in a crash. Dealers will inspect all vehicle glass and replace any glass that was improperly installed free of charge to correct the problem.
