Basic Maintenance Schedule for Your Vehicle
April 16, 2018
Keeping a maintenance schedule is important to your car’s health and longevity. But, figuring out what maintenance your vehicle needs and when, can feel like a daunting process. However, it doesn’t have to be. With the use of your owner’s manual, online resources, and an experienced team of service experts at Ozark Chevrolet, you’ll have no trouble keeping up with your vehicle’s maintenance needs.
The owner’s manual is the key to vehicle-specific maintenance advice. It will suggest a timeline for maintenance on your specific Chevrolet. This is a great first step in knowing your car and its maintenance needs.
Oil changes should generally occur every three months or every 3,000 miles (see your owner’s manual for your car’s recommended schedule). The three-month point should also include inspection of the battery, the exhaust system, other fluids, and belts.
There are some things that all cars require, no matter the make or model, that you can do at home. For instance, every month you should take a look at the condition and pressure on your vehicle’s tires. You should also check the condition of your windshield wipers and level of wiper fluid.
The list of recommended maintenance increases at the six, nine, and 12 month mark. When you schedule a service appointment at Ozark Chevrolet, let us know how long it’s been since your vehicle’s last appointment, and we will help you decide what maintenance your vehicle needs.
