Car Displayed: 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 6.6L V8 Turbo Diesel Extended Cab Pickup (4 Door)

The 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD is a relatively easy truck to maintain, and a good choice for the average truck owner. Checking the transmission fluid level is no problem, as the dipstick is easily accessible in the engine bay. Changing the fog light is easy to do, as you only have to reach underneath the vehicle for access to the bulb. The engine coolant reservoir is very visible on this vehicle. This will allow you to check and replenish the fluid level on a regular basis.

Some things are more problematic on the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD. This vehicle uses the secondary latch system for lowering your spare tire. This system is extremely complicated and difficult to navigate and can make it hard to reliably access your tire. You will have to loosen screws in order to access the engine air filter. These screws can grow rusted to the vehicle over time and be difficult to turn. Removing the center brake light can be tough, as you will have to work above the truck bed, and use a few tools, in order to complete the repair.
