  4. 50k Service Items - Coolant Flush

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    I just hit 5 years and 47k miles on my 2014 Volt. I just brought it into the dealer for probably just my 3rd oil change. Outside of some issues with the charging port, brakes and creaking sounds from the axle I haven't spent much money on maintenance. I brought it in for the oil change and...

    So I had the "service high voltage charging system" back in April. Thanks to the info on here I took it into chevy and they told me my coolant was low but there were no leaks they could find so after topping me off and resetting the system I was back in business. Then yesterday I was driving...
  9. Coolant level checks

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    The manual states that we should check coolant levels once a month (page 11-3). I just looked under the hood of my one month old 2013 Volt. The coolant tanks look pretty full but I am not sure how low they should go before I need to put in more coolant. The problem is that I can't find the...
