When to Change 2005 Suzuki XL-7 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2005 Suzuki XL-7 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Suzuki recommends having your 2005 Suzuki XL-7’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your XL-7 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Suzuki XL-7. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Suzuki XL-7?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2005 Suzuki XL-7 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your XL-7 by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Suzuki XL-7

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki XL-7 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Suzuki XL-7 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki XL-7 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
