What Is a Maintenance Schedule?
Every vehicle comes with its own maintenance schedule, which can usually be found in the owner’s manual. In here, you will find specific mileage or time intervals indicating when the manufacturer recommends scheduling maintenance, service, or an inspection. It is important to follow these guidelines to optimize the health and performance of your vehicle.
Every 7,500 Miles
At this mile interval, you’ll want to have your technician rotate your truck’s tires. Additionally, they should inspect a few of the critical components found in your GMC Sierra 1500:
- Engine coolant
- Windshield washer fluid
- Tire pressure and tread
Your technician will refill or change fluids, as well as fix or replace any of these parts as needed at every checkup.
Every 15,000 Miles
To ensure visibility when navigating through difficult weather conditions, it’s important to regularly replace your windshield wiper blades. One of our team members will happily do this for you or you can choose to complete the process at home.
Every 22,500 Miles
This interval indicates it’s time to replace the passenger compartment air filter to ensure your co-pilot continues breathing in the freshest air possible.
Every 45,000 Miles
After you’ve driven 45,000 miles, be sure to bring your vehicle in so a technician can conduct the following maintenance:
- Replace engine air cleaner filter
- Inspect evaporative control system
At this interval and again at the 97,500-mile mark, your technician should also change your transfer case fluid if your GMC Sierra 1500 is equipped with 4-wheel drive (4WD).
Every 60,000 Miles
Next, when you reach 60,000 miles, if your GMC Sierra 1500 has a 2.7L L4 Turbo engine under the hood, it’s time to replace the spark plugs and inspect the spark plug wires. However, if you have a different engine, you’ll want to schedule this service every 97,500 miles instead.
Every 75,000 Miles
When you reach this milestone, be sure to schedule an appointment to replace your truck’s hood gas struts and tailgate dampener.
Every 150,000 Miles
Finally, once you’ve reached the 150,000-mile mark, you’ll want your technician to complete the following maintenance:
- Drain and fill engine cooling system
- Visually inspect accessory drive belts
