Here’s Why 2009 Chevrolet Colorado Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Chevrolet Colorado and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Colorado has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Colorado maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Colorado perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Chevrolet Colorado problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Colorado

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Colorado’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado? 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 Colorado 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Colorado stranded. Your Chevrolet Colorado won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado's engine run smoother. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 Colorado, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Chevrolet Colorado.

Maintaining your Chevrolet Colorado steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Chevrolet Colorado suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Chevrolet Colorado's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet Colorado maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Chevrolet Colorado’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Chevrolet Colorado radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet Colorado? 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 does my Chevrolet Colorado need 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 Colorado engines.
  •  Why are my Chevrolet dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Chevrolet Colorado to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
