The 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is one of the most capable pickup trucks on the market. This heavy-duty workhorse is designed for towing and hauling big loads. It can also offer an extremely luxurious ride, especially in the range-topping High Country trim level. If you own a 2022 Silverado 3500HD, be sure to have it serviced at the recommended intervals. According to the Kimberly Chevrolet dealer, routine maintenance will improve your truck’s reliability and resale value. Here’s an overview of the Silverado 3500HD’s maintenance schedule.
Some services should be performed every 7,500 miles. Regular oil changes are especially important. If you neglect changing the oil, premature engine wear is more likely to occur. Although motor oil is formulated to provide protection for thousands of miles, old, dirty oil can damage the engine. Silverado 3500HD owners who do a lot of towing may need to change their pickup’s oil more frequently. When servicing your truck, the service technicians at the Kimberly Chevy dealer will also inspect and rotate the tires. Irregular tire wear indicates the need for a wheel alignment. Not only will a wheel alignment help extend the life of your tires, but it will also provide a smoother ride.
22,500 MilesWhen your truck reaches 22,500 miles, the cabin air filter will need to be replaced. This filter helps keep dirt, dust and pollen from entering the cabin. If it becomes clogged, the vehicle’s occupants may experience allergy symptoms. During this service visit, Chevy also recommends replacing the transmission fluid. Although transmission fluid can last for a long time, heavy use can decrease its useful life. Because the transmission is such a critical component, you shouldn’t take any chances. Additionally, the transfer case fluid should be replaced in models equipped with four-wheel drive.
When the odometer reaches 45,000 miles, it’s a good idea to replace the engine air cleaner. This important part directly impacts your truck’s performance. If you drive with a dirty engine air filter, you’ll notice weaker acceleration and a drop in fuel economy. During your 45,000-mile service, the service technicians will also change your Silverado 3500HD’s brake fluid. Replacing the brake fluid helps prevent corrosion and ensures optimum stopping power. The service technicians will also inspect the truck’s evaporative control system. A properly functioning evaporative control system helps prevent gasoline vapors from escaping the fuel system.
While modern spark plugs are extremely reliable, they’ll eventually wear out. Replacing the spark plugs at the 97,500-mile mark will help prevent trouble. Worn spark can cause several problems, including rough idling and hesitation.
Coolant is among your Silverado 3500HD’s most essential fluids. It helps prevent overheating and reduces corrosion. The rust inhibitors in coolant tend to break down after 150,000 miles. Flushing and replacing the coolant will enhance durability.
