2005 Suzuki XL-7 Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2005 Suzuki XL-7 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
