hey guys ill b coming up on 5k miles, besides changing the oil/ checking fluids (nothing has needed topping off in the year of ownership) does anyone have a maintenance shedule as far as what should be done?

ive also been interested in getting a service manual to eliminate these repetive questions i have - id like something equal to what the dealer uses, where can i get one?

Check the vendors section for service manuals. GM parts direct, Fred Beans chevy, and also check your owners manual. I believe in continous inspections, there is nothing magic about each mile post, keep a continous series of maintenance inspections and your car will never let you down. get involved in your cars upkeep. thats my opinion. enjoy your car...:cheers:

Got this from all data for 7500 miles

7500 MI or 12000 KM

Check
Coolant Notes
Check engine coolant fluid level and add fluid as needed.

Tires Notes
Check tires for inflation pressures and wear. If rotation is recommended for your vehicle, rotate tires.

Vehicle Notes
Visually check for any leaks or damage. A fluid loss in any vehicle system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired and the fluid level checked. Add fluid if needed.

Washer Fluid Notes
Check windshield washer fluid level and add fluid as needed.


Inspect
Brakes and Traction Control Notes
Inspect Brake System. Visually inspect brake lines and hoses for proper hook-up, binding, leaks, cracks, chafing, etc. Inspect disc brake pads for wear and rotors for surface condition. Inspect other brake parts, including calipers, parking brake, etc.


Replace
Engine Oil Notes
Change engine oil and filter, or every 12 months whichever occurs first. Reset the oil life system.
