Your Guide to 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Chevrolet Colorado and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Colorado. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 Colorado's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Chevrolet Colorado problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Colorado

Bring your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 2018 Chevrolet Colorado? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Colorado may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Colorado battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 prevent premature wear on your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado engine. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Colorado, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chevrolet Colorado can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Chevrolet Colorado steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Chevrolet Colorado's steering system require 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. 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 Colorado engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Chevrolet Colorado radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado. Get answers to common Chevrolet Colorado maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet Colorado? You know your Chevrolet Colorado better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Colorado? 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.
  • 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 Colorado, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
