2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Maintenance Schedule
Full-size trucks are very popular with today’s buyers. The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 remains one of the best-selling pickups of the bunch. Customers of the Liberty Lake Chevrolet dealer value the Silverado 1500 for its time-tested reliability, classic styling, and incredible versatility.
If you own a Silverado 1500, it will provide you with many years of performance, but it’s important to bring your pickup for scheduled maintenance. Adhering to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule will help to keep your truck operating properly and safely. We’ll take a look at some of your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s maintenance highlights.
The Liberty Lake Chevy dealer recommends bringing your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for scheduled maintenance every 7,500 miles. The service technicians will perform many critical maintenance tasks during the first visit. An oil change is perhaps the most important maintenance service. Changing the engine oil will extend its life and prevent you from needing to make costly engine repairs. The service technicians will also replace the oil filter at this time. A battery inspection is another important service. Your truck’s battery will last for years, but it will be checked for corrosion on the terminals and loose wires. These problems can prevent your vehicle from starting. The tires will be inspected for uneven wear. Your Silverado 1500 may need a wheel alignment if the tires aren’t wearing evenly. The wipers will also be checked during this service visit. The services included at 7,500 miles will be repeated during the other maintenance visits.
At 22,000 miles, the service technicians will change your truck’s engine air filter. When this filter gets dirty, you’ll notice reduced performance. During this visit, the fuel filter will also be inspected. The fuel filter generally needs to 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 should replace it if your vehicle is more than three years old, even if you have less than 45,000 miles on the odometer.
When your Silverado 1500’s odometer reaches 97,500 miles, it will be time to replace the spark plugs. While spark plugs are designed to last for years, they’ll wear out eventually. Replacing the spark plugs as recommended by the manufacturer will prevent problems with performance, including rough idling and weak acceleration. The service technicians will also check your pickup’s ignition wires for signs of wear.
At 150,000 miles, the service technicians will inspect the accessory drive belts and replace them if needed. A broken belt can cause a breakdown. The cooling system will be flushed during this visit because it will lose its rust-preventing properties over time.
Following your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s recommended maintenance schedule will help keep the vehicle in top working condition and prevent many problems. Call us when it’s time to schedule your truck’s next maintenance appointment or if you have questions about your pickup’s maintenance.
