Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Suzuki XL-7

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Suzuki XL-7? Engine oil is a lubricant for the 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.
  • Can I change my Suzuki oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
