The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is one of the most popular trucks on the market today. For 2020, the Silverado is bigger, tougher and lighter than the outgoing model. This full-size pickup comes with a choice of powerful engines, including a 6.2-liter V8 that provides best-in-class power and towing, as well as a Duramax 3.0-liter turbodiesel that offers segment-leading fuel economy. These are just some of the reasons the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a favorite at dealerships like the Mountain Home Chevrolet dealer.
Because your Silverado 1500 is a significant investment, it pays to keep it properly maintained. Be sure to bring your Silverado 1500 to the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center when it’s time for scheduled maintenance. Here are highlights of some of the milestones of your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s maintenance schedule.
Mountain Home Chevrolet Dealer
7,500 Miles: Chevrolet recommends taking your Silverado 1500 to the Mountain Home Chevy dealer for routine maintenance every 7,500 miles. Our expert service technicians will perform necessary maintenance services, including an oil and oil filter change. Oil changes are one of the most essential services the mechanics will perform, as flushes out the old dirty oil and prolongs the engine’s life. Other services included in the 7,500-mile maintenance include a battery inspection, a tire inspection and a tire rotation. The wiper blades will be replaced, if needed.
22,500 Miles: All scheduled maintenance service visits include an oil and oil filter change. The engine’s air filter will also be replaced. This filter will eventually begin to collect dirt, which clogs the filer and causes a loss of fuel economy and performance. The fuel filter may also need to be replaced.
45,000 Miles: Brakes are perhaps your Silverado’s most important safety system. At 45,000 miles, the mechanics will replace the brake fluid to make sure the brakes work correctly. An oil and oil filter change are also part of this service visit.
97,500 Miles: When the odometer reaches 97,500 miles, it will be time for a spark plug replacement. Spark plugs have a long life, but they eventually wear out over time. When the service technicians replace your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500’s spark plugs, it will prevent the truck from developing weak acceleration and rough idling. Another service the mechanics will provide is an inspection of the ignition wires.
150,000 Miles: At the 150,00-mile-mark, your Silverado 1500’s accessory drive belts will be replaced. These crucial engine parts must work properly to avert a sudden breakdown. The service technicians will also flush the coolant system, as old coolant eventually loses its ability to prevent oxidation.
Keeping your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in top shape isn’t hard. Just stick to the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule. It will prevent you from experiencing many types of problems. The complete maintenance schedule is located in your Silverado’s owner’s manual.
