2008 Suzuki XL-7 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2008 Suzuki XL-7 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Suzuki XL-7’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2008 XL-7’s oil should be changed according to Suzuki’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your XL-7 in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your XL-7 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

2008 Suzuki XL-7 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki XL-7? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Suzuki XL-7 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki XL-7 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
