How Often to Get 2006 Suzuki XL-7 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2006 Suzuki XL-7? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Suzuki recommends changing your 2006 XL-7’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your XL-7 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Suzuki recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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 Type of Oil Does My Suzuki XL-7 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Suzuki XL-7. Suzuki has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2006 XL-7. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your XL-7's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your XL-7 by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2006 Suzuki XL-7 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki XL-7? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your XL-7’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki XL-7 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
