Bring your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Could your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Avalanche 2500 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 engine. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 Avalanche 2500, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500? We can help with that, too!

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
