What to Know About 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Avalanche and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Avalanche. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Avalanche, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Avalanche's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Avalanche

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Avalanche’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Avalanche battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Avalanche) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Avalanche won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 Avalanche. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche.

Maintaining your Chevrolet Avalanche steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Avalanche's steering and suspension system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet Avalanche? 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 use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Avalanche? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Chevrolet Avalanche? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Chevrolet Avalanche in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
