    Took it back to place that changed oil and they used a stethescope and said it was coming from upper oil pan area and they do not work on engines. Took it to dealership and two days later said it was timing chain and tensioners needed replaced.

    Oil leak from the front of engine timing chain cover. I keep adding oil between oil changes. Looking at some of these posts it maybe time to trade in.

    Timing chain tensioner stuffed just like everyone else who owns the v6 engine from suzuki, chain now causing water leak into the engine oil because its wearing into the engine itself , and Suzuki still have not fixed this problem for years , shame shame: The coots should fix this problem for free for everyone! Oil leak was discovered after being on a lift for another problem. Has not been fixed. Im guessing timing chain tensioner replacement and timing cover gasket repair Booked in for service but days before due in heard metal grating sound from what I thought was exhaust front box.
