2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Maintenance Schedule
Full-size pickups are very popular with today’s buyers, and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has long been one of the best-selling models. The Silverado 1500 provides owners with a comfortable cabin, outstanding reliability, and exceptional versatility. If you own a 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you can be confident it will provide years of dependable performance. To keep your truck driving in top condition, it’s important to bring it to a dealership like the Cottonwood Chevrolet dealer for scheduled maintenance. We’ll review some of your Silverado 1500’s maintenance milestones and let you know what to expect.
Your Silverado 1500’s first scheduled maintenance visit occurs at 7,500 miles. When you bring your pickup to the Cottonwood Chevrolet dealership for this visit, our certified service technicians will perform several vital maintenance services. An oil change is essential. Changing your truck’s oil regularly will extend the engine’s life and ensure you won’t be faced with expensive engine repairs down the road. The technicians will also replace the oil filter and inspect the battery. While today’s batteries are designed to last for years, the technicians will check for battery issues that can keep the vehicle from starting, such as loose cables or corrosion on the terminals. The technicians will also inspect the Silverado 1500’s tires and check the wear pattern. Uneven tire wear can be an indication the vehicle needs a wheel alignment. The wipers will also be checked at this time.
At 22,000 miles, the engine’s air filter will need to be changed. The air filter can get dirty over time. The Silverado 1500’s performance will likely suffer if this part gets clogged. The technicians will also check the vehicle’s fuel filter, which should be replaced every 20,000 to 40,000 miles.
At 45,000 miles, the service technicians will change your Chevy Silverado 1500’s brake fluid. The brake fluid can last up to three years. If your pickup has less than 45,000 miles but is more than three years old, you’ll want to replace the brake fluid before this visit.
When your 2023 Chevrolet 1500 arrives at the 97,500-mile mark, it will be time to replace the spark plugs. Spark plugs should last many years, but like other auto parts, they eventually wear out. Replacing your Silverado 1500’s spark plugs as recommended by the manufacturer will prevent performance problems such as weak acceleration and rough idling. During this service visit, the technician will also inspect the vehicle’s ignition wires for signs of wear.
At 150,000 miles, the service technicians will inspect the Silverado 1500’s accessory drive belts and replace them if necessary. This is important; a broken drive belt can cause a breakdown. During this visit, the technicians will also flush the truck’s cooling system because the coolant will lose its rust-preventing properties over time.
Adhering to your 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s recommended maintenance schedule will help keep it in excellent working condition and prevent many problems from occurring. Call us to schedule your next maintenance service visit.
