What Does Your Suzuki XL-7 Transmission Do?

Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Suzuki XL-7 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Suzuki XL-7 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your XL-7’s not even driveable.

2002 Suzuki XL-7 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your XL-7 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my XL-7 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 XL-7’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Suzuki. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
