The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado is a highly versatile and reliable pickup truck, delivering impressive power for towing and hauling heavy loads and providing exceptional daily driving comfort. To ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your 2023 Colorado, it’s essential to follow the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance schedule. The Chino Valley Chevrolet dealer stresses the importance of regular maintenance to prevent future issues. This article provides an overview of the Colorado’s maintenance schedule, ensuring your truck stays in top condition.
The first service should be performed when your Colorado reaches 7,500 miles. Changing the oil is critical to prevent premature engine wear. While modern motor oil is designed to last for thousands of miles, heat can cause it to degrade over time. Replacing the oil filter keeps harmful contaminants from entering the engine, helping to provide optimal performance.
The service technicians at the Chino Valley Chevrolet dealership will also perform a tire rotation during this service visit. This service helps extend tire life by ensuring the tires wear evenly. The technicians will also inspect the tires for uneven wear, which may indicate the need for a wheel alignment. They’ll also inspect the brakes. These services will be repeated at each subsequent 7,500-mile interval.
When your Colorado reaches 22,500 miles, the cabin air filter will be replaced. This filter enhances the air quality in the cabin by capturing dust and pollen particles, ensuring a pleasant driving environment. A clean cabin air filter also helps maintain strong airflow from the climate control system. During this service appointment, our technicians will also examine the engine air filter, which requires replacement every 20,000 to 40,000 miles.
At the 45,000-mile mark, our service technicians will replace your Colorado’s brake fluid. With a lifespan of up to three years, the brake fluid should be replaced if your truck has less than 45,000 miles on the odometer but is over three years old. This service visit also includes an inspection of the evaporative control system, ensuring the proper functioning of the vehicle’s emission control system.
Modern spark plugs can last up to 100,000 miles, but replacing them around 97,500 miles is recommended for consistent performance. Worn spark plugs may cause issues such as hard starts and engine hesitation. If your Colorado features all-wheel drive, our service technicians will replace the transfer case fluid.
When your Colorado’s odometer reaches 150,000 miles, it will be time to flush the coolant system. Coolant helps the engine maintain the correct temperature and prevents corrosion, but the rust inhibitors in the coolant degrade over time. The service technicians will also inspect the condition of the coolant hoses and the engine’s accessory drive belts for signs of excessive wear, replacing them if necessary.
