How Often Should I Service My Chevrolet Equinox?

You may already know that your Chevy Equinox needs a regular oil change, but it also needs to go in for periodic service appointments to ensure it is in good condition. Regular maintenance on your car can improve its performance and make it safer to drive. Routine service on the engine can also enhance your car's fuel economy and make it quieter to operate. Generally, Chevy Equinox service intervals start at 15,000 miles, which follows the initial oil change needed at 8,000 miles. To keep up with your Chevy Equinox service intervals, consult the owner's manual that comes with your car for a precise schedule.

15,000-Mile Service

At 15,000 miles, a certified technician will perform the first series of services on your vehicle. Your Equinox will get an oil change at this time, and it may get a new engine filter installed so that the engine runs smoothly and performs at its maximum capacity. The Equinox's tires will be inspected to ensure they are correctly filled and haven't lost too much tread. The tires are rotated if necessary, and the car may have an alignment.

30,000-Mile Service

When your Equinox gets to 30,000 miles, it will be due for another oil change, and it will have the engine filter cleaned or replaced. The air filter in the car's cabin will also be replaced at 30,000 miles. A technician will perform a multi-point visual inspection of your car to ensure the hoses, belts, lights, wipers, and other safety and mechanical components look okay.

60,000-Mile Service

Your Chevy Equinox will be serviced again at 60,000 miles. The Equinox will have another oil change when it reaches 60,000 miles. The engine air filter may be changed as well for maximum engine performance. The air filter in the car's cabin will be replaced. The car's battery is checked for power and strength and replaced if needed. The brake fluid is changed, and the engine cooling system is drained and filled. The transfer case fluid is changed on AWD models.

90,000-Mile Service

At 90,000 miles, your Chevy Equinox will be due for another oil change and a tire replacement or rotation. It may have an alignment as well. The evaporative control system is inspected, along with the engine's accessory drive belts. The exhaust system will get an inspection at this point, and the transmission fluid will be checked and changed if needed. The power steering may be flushed and refilled, and the spark plugs may be replaced.
