Part of vehicle ownership is making sure you take care of your vehicle’s routine maintenance. We at Bert Ogden Buick GMC want to make that easy for you, so we’ve put together a maintenance schedule for GMC Sierra 1500 owners.
At every 7,500-mile mark or every six months, you should bring your Sierra in for its regular check-up. During this maintenance, your truck will get its tires rotated, a safety inspection, and its oil and filter changed. The mechanic will check the truck’s brakes, belts, and hoses, as well as look for any fluid leaks to ensure your Sierra is performing at its peak. Your truck’s engine coolant levels should also be checked, along with its windshield wiper fluid levels.
Every 22,500 Miles
Even the most minor maintenance is essential to keeping your Sierra 1500 in top shape. That’s why every 22,500 miles or every two years, whichever comes first, you need to get your Sierra’s cabin air filter replaced. If you have a front-wheel-drive Sierra 1500, you will also need to have its transfer case fluid changed.
Every 45,000 Miles
Every time you reach 45,000 miles, you need to get important service completed. You will need your evaporative control system inspected, and the following mechanics checked or replaced: engine air cleaner filter, automatic transmission fluid, transfer case fluid, brake fluid, and clutch fluid. You should also have your spark plugs and their wires inspected at this time.
When You Hit 150,000 Miles
If you’ve had your Sierra 1500 for 150,000 miles, then you have already been taking great care of it to bring it this far. At this point, you need to continue doing so. Bring your pickup truck in to get your engine cooling system drained and refilled. You will also need to have your accessory drive belts checked for fraying, excessive cracking, and other obvious damage.
If your Sierra 1500 needs maintenance or an inspection, bring it to the Bert Ogden Buick GMC service center.
