2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Maintenance Schedule
Full-size pickups are among America’s best-selling vehicles. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has long been one of the most popular models. There are many reasons for the success of the Silverado 1500, including its comfortable cabin, exceptional versatility, and outstanding reliability. If you own a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado, you made a great choice. Your truck will provide you with years of dependable performance. To keep your Silverado 1500 operating in top condition, it’s important to bring it to a dealership like the Asheville Chevrolet dealer for scheduled maintenance. We’ll discuss some of the maintenance milestones during the life of your Silverado and let you know what to expect.
Your first scheduled maintenance visit comes at 7,500 miles. When you bring your Silverado 1500 to the Asheville Chevy dealer for this visit, you’ll receive several essential maintenance services. An oil change is vital. Changing your Silverado 1500’s oil will extend the engine’s life and ensure you won’t have to make expensive repairs. The oil filter will also be replaced, and the battery will be inspected. While today’s batteries are designed to hold a charge for many miles, the technicians will check the battery for problems that may keep the truck 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 wear on the tires could be a sign the wheels need to be aligned. The service technicians will also check the wipers at this time.
At 22,000 miles, it will be time to change the engine air filter. This filter gets dirty over time. If it becomes clogged, your Silverado 1500 may experience lower performance. The technicians will also check the truck’s fuel filter, which typically must be replaced every 20,000 to 40,000 miles.
At 45,000 miles, the service technicians will change your Silverado 1500’s brake fluid. The brake fluid lasts up to three years, so you replace it if your vehicle is more than three years old, even if you have less than 45,000 miles on the odometer.
When you get to the 97,500-mile mark, it will be time for a spark plug replacement. Spark plugs are designed to last for years, but they will eventually wear out. Replacing your Silverado 1500’s spark plugs as recommended by Chevrolet will prevent performance problems such as weak acceleration and rough idling. The technicians will also inspect the vehicle’s ignition wires for signs of wear during this service visit.
At 150,000 miles, the Silverado’s accessory drive belts will be checked and replaced if necessary. This is important as a broken drive belt can lead to a breakdown. The cooling system will be flushed during this visit because the coolant loses its rust-preventing properties over time.
