Chevrolet Colorado Maintenance Schedule

Blue Chevrolet Colorado driving on road near lake

The Chevy Colorado is a great choice for Omaha drivers who are looking for a highly capable pickup truck that’s more affordable than the larger Chevy Silverado. The Colorado is a bit smaller than the Silverado, while still offering impressive specs, powerful towing capabilities, and plenty of next-generation technology inside the cabin.

If you drive a Colorado, you might be wondering about the best way to keep it running in top condition. The first and most important thing we’d recommend is to stick to the Chevy maintenance schedule, which involves bringing your pickup in for service every 7,500 miles. Most of these appointments involve regular services like oil changes and tire rotations, while later appointments could involve more complex system replacements and inspections. The service team at Sid Dillon Chevrolet-blair Inc has more information on the Chevrolet Colorado maintenance schedule in the guide below – check it out!

Standard Chevrolet Colorado Service Schedule

Chevrolet, like other General Motors companies such as Buick and GMC, uses a service schedule that operates on 7,500-mile intervals–that’s about 7 to 8 months of use if your Chevy Colorado is your daily driver. There are a total of 20 service intervals, going all the way up to 150,000 miles, which is around 12 years of drive time! We’ve listed the five most important service milestones below:

After 7,500 miles: 

  • Rotate tires
  • Change oil and filter
  • Lubricate doors
  • Inspect brakes, hoses, and belts

After 22,500 miles: 

  • All 7,500-mile services
  • Replace cabin filter
  • Replace brake pads

After 60,000 miles: 

  • All 22,500-mile services
  • Replace air filter
  • Replace timing belt

After 100,000 miles: 

  • All 60,000-mile services
  • Replace spark plugs
  • Replace transmission fluid
  • Replace transfer case fluid

After 150,000 miles: 

  • All 100,000-mile services
  • Flush cooling system
  • Replace fuel filter
  • Replace steering or suspension component
  • Replace shock absorbers

Chevrolet Colorado Home Care

Another easy way to keep your Chevy Colorado working properly on the Lincoln roads is to perform a few DIY inspections from home! You can do these inspections as often as you want, but we’d recommend setting aside a couple of minutes each month to do a once-over of your vehicle. Here’s what you can do:

  • Check to see if the check engine light is on
  • Clean the interior and exterior
  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work
  • Check tire pressure and tread
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled
