At Each Fuel Stop

Engine Oil Change

When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message displays, have the engine oil and filter changed within the next 1 000 km/600 mi. If driven under the best conditions, the engine oil life system might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the oil life system must be reset. Your trained dealer technician can perform this work.

If the engine oil life system is reset accidentally, service the vehicle within 5 000 km/3,000 mi since the last service. Reset the oil life system when the oil is changed.

Chevrolet Equinox: Maintenance Schedule. Footnotes Ч Maintenance Schedule Additional Required Services Ч Normal

Footnotes Ч Maintenance Schedule Additional Required Services Ч Normal

(1) Or every two years, whichever comes first. More frequent replacement may be needed if the vehicle is driven in areas with heavy traffic, areas with poor air quality, or areas with high dust levels.

Replacement may also be needed if there is a reduction in air flow, excessive window fogging, or odors.
(2) Check all fuel and vapor lines and hoses for proper hook-up, routing, and condition. Check that the purge valve, if the vehicle has one, works properly. Replace as needed.
(3) Or every four years, whichever comes first.
(4) Do not directly power wash the transfer case output seals. High pressure water can overcome the seals and contaminate the transfer case fluid. Contaminated fluid will decrease the life of the transfer case and should be replaced.
(5) Or every five years, whichever comes first.
(6) Or every 10 years, whichever comes first.
(7) Inspect for fraying, excessive cracking, or damage; replace, if needed.
