V6 maintenance

So I recently picked up picked up a grandpa fresh 2011 1LT base model with 36K miles for a smoking deal. I know the owner and know it was well taken care of, but with such low mileage what do y’all recommend if anything as far as maintenance?

Belts and hoses look good, Coolant tests good, tires look like new but dated 2012 so they’re getting replaced.
Also when I drove it hard it felt like clutch slippage from 1-2 and 2-3 so I’m gonna bleed the clutch.

Thanks,
Chip

You won't need anything major. I did not have any real mechanical issues till
Front main seal at 224,514 miles.
I got to 206,000 miles before replacing the water pump.
Alternator at 181111 Miles.
Rear wheel bearings at 140674 miles.

Just keep after it, and you'll be fine.

KEEP AFTER THE OIL!
Check your oil level every 600 miles, and ADD when needed. The timing chain
failure on the LLT engine is directly linked to low oil. The LLT motors consume a
lot of oil through the PCV, passenger side. There is an updated valve cover gasket
to reduce it for that side.

Install a catch can on the RH side PCV line as soon as possible!

Do the PCV Valve PART update; either buy one for a 2013 motor, and replace yours,
or drill the two bottom holes to 5/64" and top hole to 7/64" - 9/64" GM updated
the valve because the bottom holes clog, mine did.


Going on 238,000 miles...
