What to Know About 2013 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, your Avalanche has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Avalanche Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Avalanche battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 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 help your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche's engine run smoother. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Avalanche in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Avalanche can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Chevrolet Avalanche suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Chevrolet Avalanche's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Chevrolet Avalanche services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Chevrolet Avalanche engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Chevrolet Avalanche radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche maintenance.

2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche. Get answers to common Chevrolet Avalanche maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Avalanche alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 Avalanche is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Chevrolet Avalanche need high mileage oil? If your Chevrolet Avalanche has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • 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.
