How Often Should I Service My Chevrolet Equinox?

The Chevrolet Equinox has a reputation for being reliable. However, the importance of routine maintenance cannot be emphasized enough. A lack of regular servicing is bound to cause repair costs to rise. To find your specific model recommend maintenance intervals, always refer to the vehicle owner's manual. Here's an overview of the typical Chevrolet Equinox service intervals.

15,000-Mile Service

When your Equinox reaches 15,000 miles on the odometer, it's likely due to another oil change. Regularly changing the motor oil will help prevent premature engine wear and tear. Expect the service technicians also to perform a tire rotation. This service is meant to extend tire life, saving you a lot of money in the long run. To be on the safe side, the condition of your brake pads will be checked as well.

30,000-Mile Service

At the 30,000-mile mark, it's recommended to replace the engine air filter. As excessive amounts of dust and other debris collect on the filter, airflow to the engine becomes restricted. This will eventually result in a noticeable decrease in performance.

60,000-Mile Service

Now is the time to have your spark plugs and ignition wires replaced. This is a critical aspect of the Chevrolet Equinox maintenance schedule. If the spark plugs begin to wear down, don't expect your vehicle to run nearly as well. Among the potential performance issues include rough idling, hard starting, and hesitation.

90,000-Mile Service

To ensure your Equinox doesn't have any developing problems, the service team will perform a comprehensive inspection at the 90,000-mile interval. Your transmission will also be flushed to ensure reliable performance. If your Equinox is equipped with an all-wheel drive, it's essential to have the transfer case fluid changed.
