While you're there, look for any signs of apparent damage, like worn belts or a corroded battery. If you think things seem off, bring your truck into Titus-Will Chevrolet for a checkup. It's our mission to simplify the ownership process and help keep your new Chevy truck in peak condition for years to come. 

DON’T SKIP THE OIL CHANGE

DON’T SKIP THE OIL CHANGE

All vehicles need oil changes regularly. For trucks, it’s usually good to get one around every 7,500 miles, but that number varies from model to model so you should check your owner’s manual for the most specific information.

Oil changes are important for the longevity of a truck because they help keep the engine running smoothly. Clean oil and a fresh oil filter can prevent a need for serious repairs.

GET THE TIRES ROTATED

GET THE TIRES ROTATED

Every time you have your truck’s oil changed, consider getting the tires rotated as well. This maintenance step will ensure even wear on all of your truck’s tires, which is important for extending the life of the tires. Having the tires rotated will also help protect from strain on your truck’s suspension.

OPT FOR AN ALIGNMENT

OPT FOR AN ALIGNMENT

If you spend time taking your pickup off road or over rougher terrains, chances are you could stand to get your truck an alignment as well. Having a proper alignment helps prevent wear on tires and increases gas mileage, as well. When you bring your truck into Titus-Will Chevrolet for an oil change and tire rotation, opt for an alignment as well. 

CHECK THE FLUIDS

CHECK THE FLUIDS
Good truck maintenance is about staying in tune with your truck’s condition and needs. Try to get in the habit of popping your pickup’s hood every other week or so and taking a peek at what’s beneath. Check the fluid levels, like the oil, coolant, and the washer fluid.
