The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact crossover that seats five. Buyers at dealerships like the Seligman Chevrolet dealer have made the Equinox the brand’s best-selling SUV, thanks to its outstanding driving dynamics, exceptional fuel economy, roomy rear seats, and low starting price. Under the hood, the Equinox gets a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.
If you drive the 2022 Chevy Equinox, bringing it in for scheduled maintenance service is the best way to keep it operating properly and safely. Here are details of some of your Equinox’s scheduled maintenance visits.
According to the Seligman Chevy dealer, the manufacturer recommends taking your 2022 Equinox for scheduled maintenance service at 7,500-mile intervals. Services that will be performed during this visit include an oil change. Motor oil is developed to protect your vehicle’s engine for thousands of miles, but the oil breaks down over time. Changing the oil and oil filter regularly will keep the engine from wearing prematurely.
The service technicians will rotate the tires and inspect the vehicle’s brakes to ensure they’re in good condition. They’ll also examine the tires for signs of uneven wear. This visit also includes a check of the Equinox’s fluid levels and a wiper blade inspection. The services of the 7,500-mile visit will be repeated during each maintenance visit.
During this service visit, the service technicians will replace the cabin air filter. This part keeps contaminants like dust, dirt and pollen from entering the passenger compartment, allowing everyone to breathe easily.
When your 2022 Chevrolet Equinox reaches 45,000 miles, it will be time to change the engine’s air filter. If this part becomes clogged, you’re likely to notice sluggish performance, including weak acceleration caused by an insufficient air supply to the engine. You may also see reduced fuel economy. The service technicians will also change the vehicle’s transmission fluid and inspect the evaporative control system.
This maintenance service visit includes a spark plug replacement and a check of the spark plug wires. Failing to change the spark plugs can result in poor performance, including hesitation, hard starts, and poor fuel efficiency.
At the 75,000-mile mark, the service technicians will replace your 2022 Equinox’s hood and body lift support gas struts.
When the odometer reaches 150,000 miles, the service technicians will flush and replace the engine coolant. This important engine fluid helps keep the engine from overheating in the summer and freezing in the winter. They’ll also inspect the coolant hoses and check for wear and leaks. Finally, the drive belts will be checked for wear. Belts that are worn will be replaced. A broken drive belt can cause a breakdown.
