What is My Car Maintenance Schedule?

Car Mechanic Going Over Checklist

The best way to make sure that your new GMC or pre-owned vehicle is always running safely at peak performance levels on North Myrtle Beach roads is to keep up to date with your car maintenance schedule. While truck maintenance may differ slightly from sedan or SUV maintenance, there is a relatively standard schedule you can use as a guideline to maintain proper vehicle care. Learn more about your GMC maintenance in this guide from the experts in the Bell And Bell GMC Service Center



Basic Car Maintenance Schedule

The standard car or truck maintenance schedule includes key services that are required at pre-set mile markers. These services are designed to keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently on Myrtle Beach-area roads and beyond, and can actually extend the life of your car, truck, or SUV. Take a look at the recommended GMC maintenance schedule below:

  • Automatic transmission, power steering, wiper fluid levels
  • Engine oil and air filter
  • Belts, exhaust, and hoses
  • All lights inside and out
  • Fuel filter
  • Tire pressure, tire tread wear and tear check

Every 6 months or 6,000 miles:

  • Car battery and cables
  • Chassis lubrication
  • Windshield wipers
  • Polish your vehicle

Every 12 months or 12,000 miles:

  • Brake system
  • Coolant levels
  • Transmission fluid levels
  • Steering and suspension

Monthly Car Maintenance

While you can always count on the service team at Bell And Bell GMC to handle your GMC maintenance checks and replacements, there are several routine tasks you can do yourself to help keep your vehicle in top shape. The following tasks should be performed monthly: 

  • Check oil level
