If you own an Equinox, bringing it to the Prescott Valley Chevrolet dealership for scheduled maintenance is the best way to keep it operating in top shape. Here are highlights of some of the Equinox’s scheduled maintenance visits.
According to Chevrolet, your 2023 Equinox should have scheduled maintenance performed every 7,500 miles. During this first visit, the technicians will check the engine’s oil level and change the oil and oil filter. Motor oil is designed to lubricate and protect the engine for a long time, but it does deteriorate over time. Regular oil changes will significantly reduce engine wear.
When you bring your Chevrolet Equinox in for its 7,500-mile visit, the service technicians will check all the features that keep your SUV running smoothly, including inspecting the brakes and tires. They’ll examine the fluid levels and top them off if needed. They’ll also rotate the tires to ensure they last longer and check the condition of the wipers. Every maintenance visit includes these services, so you can rest assured your Equinox will continue to drive optimally and safely.
At 45,000 miles, the air filter will need to be changed to keep the engine running optimally. Weak acceleration, decreased fuel economy, and poor engine performance are all signs that the air filter needs to be replaced. In addition to the air filter, the service technicians will replace the transmission fluid to keep the engine components running smoothly.
At 100,000 miles, the spark plugs will be replaced to avoid issues with poor performance, hard starts, and reduced fuel economy.
Finally, at 150,000 miles, the engine coolant will be flushed and changed. This crucial fluid helps to keep the engine from freezing in the winter and overheating in the summer. Old coolant is unable to protect the cooling system from rust, which is another reason it’s so important to change the fluid at this juncture. The service technicians will also inspect the coolant hoses for wear and leaks. They’ll also check the drive belts for signs of wear and replace them if needed.
Taking care of these service items will ensure your Equinox continues to run properly and safely for years to come.
