New 2017 LT owner, questions...

Just purchased a new 2017 LT AWD. I do my own general maintenance typically. I have done early fluid changes on every car and don't plan anything different on this one.

Almost every fluid is listed in the manual, except the rear differential. Bought the car less than six hours ago, so haven't been under it yet. I'm assuming it's a typical differential that takes gear oil...what weight? I'm assuming either 75w90 or the new 75w85?

Other than oil, PS, trans, and differential, any other fluids? Any other typical PM needed? I'm assuming this isn't different than any other new car and lacks any grease fittings?

Out of curiosity, does the 2.4l have a timing belt?

I can see that you are going to be an asset to this forum. We like people that are anal with their vehicles. (meant as conscientious !)

With your VIN, any GM dealer can tell your what GM fluid is recommended for the rear drive module. The fluid recommendation is also listed in your vehicle owner's manual under "recommended fluids, lubricants and parts". The capacity is also listed in the manual.

Re:

Not that I could find in the manual for the 2017, I went through it and even confirmed with the salesman that neither the fluid type nor capacity appear to be listed. All the the other fluids are lists, but not the rear differential.

I've never accepted that fluids are good for life...they degrade like everything else.

On edit, you were referring to the chain, I was thinking the rear differential fluid.

Here's what GMSI says about rear end fluid.

GM Differential Lubricant
Synthetic Gear Oil
88900401 USA
89021678 Canada

75W90 Synthetic.

Now with new grape scent. And that's not a joke.
