How Often Should I Service My Chevrolet Equinox?

To make sure your vehicle performs at its best, you'll want to check the owner's manual for the correct Chevy Equinox maintenance schedule. Although Equinox's service schedule follows the approximate service milestones for other cars, it's essential to look at your car's exact service recommendations, as requirements vary among models and trim levels. Even if your vehicle is only due for minor services, it's essential to have a certified mechanic look at your car at each service interval to ensure there aren't any underlying problems that can lead to damage or cause safety concerns.

15,000-Mile Service

For optimal health, regular Chevrolet Equinox service intervals begin at 15,000 miles. The Chevy will be due for its second synthetic oil change at this time. The first oil change is performed at 7,500 miles. During the 15,000-mile checkup, the Equinox may also need a replacement of the engine filter, so that clean and oxygenated air enters the fuel lines. The Equinox gets its tires inspected at 15,000 miles. The tire pressure levels are corrected if necessary.

30,000-Mile Service

Your Equinox will next need an inspection at 30,000 miles. The car will need another oil change at 30,000 miles, and it will get the engine filter replaced. The tires are checked for pressure and tread level, and they'll be rotated again if needed. The cabin air filter is changed at 30,000 miles, and the car will have an exterior inspection of the lighting elements and the wipers. The brake fluid may be replaced at this point, and the evaporative control system will get inspected.

60,000-Mile Service

When your Equinox hits 60,000 miles, it will be due for a slightly more comprehensive inspection. The oil is changed again, and the engine filter and cabin filter are replaced. The automatic transmission fluid is replaced if your vehicle has all-wheel drive. The accessory drive belts are examined for signs of wear and replaced if necessary. Your Equinox may also be due for a battery replacement at 60,000 miles. The spark plugs and wiring also get checked.

90,000-Mile Service

The Equinox will have its oil changed and oil filter replaced at 90,000 miles. The transmission fluid and transfer case fluid may be replaced again. The coolant fluid is drained and refilled, along with the power steering fluid. The Equinox has its tires rotated and balanced, and it may get an alignment. The mechanic will give your car a multi-point inspection, too.
