Replacement Parts You Can Trust
At Premier Chevrolet of Seaside, we are proud to ensure you that only OEM and ACDelco parts are used. ACDelco is owned by General Motors and makes many parts that go onto Chevrolet vehicles. Using OEM parts is important because of GM’s engineering. When GM is developing a new vehicle, they are only testing and stressing their own parts and systems. If you put on aftermarket parts for saving money or better performance you are risking the creation of a weak point in the system that can cause a premature failure to the replaced part or other parts in the vehicle.
Scheduling Service at Premier Chevrolet
If you are a Business Elite partner your service rep can work with you to handle all of your service scheduling, but if you aren’t, take advantage of our service scheduler to remove the hassle from planning your routine maintenance. If you have an existing account it is more than simple. For new customers, you can start by filling out your make, year, and model.
Keeping your Silverado or Express running as it should, routine oil changes are crucial. Every vehicle has a recommended oil change schedule using OEM oil and filters. Most modern-day vehicles follow a 6-month or 5,000 mile recommend oil change schedule. Some vehicles do differ, and checking your service manual or calling our dealership at (831) 920-3196 with your year, make, and model so we can provide you with information on your oil change intervals.
Our service department is more than happy to test your battery if you seem to be having an issue. If you begin to notice lights dimming as you start the vehicle or if it takes a longer than usual amount of time to start, it is a good idea to have your battery tested. Beyond your battery is the alternator and started that we can also test to ensure your vehicle stays running when you need it. It is also a good idea to check the battery during spring and fall to help avoid being stranded because of a bad battery giving out from extreme heat or cold.
Every vehicle has a set range of measurements for your camber, toe, and caster. Camber is the angle that the wheels sit from rotating on the x-axis when viewing the vehicle from the front. Toe is the measurement of the front of the wheels being angled in or out when viewed from above. Caster is the angle of the steering axis when you view the vehicle from the side. At Premier, our experienced tech can keep your alignment within spec to get the perfect balance of safety and longevity out of your tires.
Chassis Lubrication is an often-forgotten part of maintenance that is an essential step in getting the most out of your vehicle. Many chassis components use heavy-duty lithium grease to lubricate chassis components that move together. This grease also protects the components and minimizes wear and helps to seal the joint from moisture contamination
If your brakes aren’t working like they used to, it is a good idea to have them checked out. Braking is essential for safety. Other signs that warrant a visit are wobbling or vibration when braking at higher speeds, squeaking or grinding sounds, a shaky steering wheel, or the vehicle pulling to one side or the other when braking
