How to Change the Cabin Air Filter in Your Car

How to Change the Cabin Air Filter in Your Car

 

Knowing how to change the cabin air filter in your car is important, because it can keep your car’s heat and AC working better. The cabin air filter is easy to change, so doing it yourself can save you money on scheduled maintenance. Follow these steps and you’ll have a fresh air filter installed in no time.

1. Remove the glove box

First, you need to remove your glove box so you can get to the air filter. To do this open the glove box and remove the limiting stop arm that holds it in place, then squeeze the front and back of the glove box until the clamps release.

2. Take out the old air filter

There should be a faceplate covering your air filter. All you have to do is move the latches to take the faceplate off and pull the air filter out. Make sure to pay attention to the arrows that indicate the direction of the airflow.

3. Clean the area

Use a cloth to wipe away any dust and debris that have accumulated. You want the gaskets and filter chamber to be as clean as possible before you install the new air filter.

4. Install the new air filter

Make sure the arrows on your new air filter are facing the same direction as the old filter and pop it into place. It should fit in easily.

5. Replace the glove box

Reassemble the glove box, and you’re done! You’ve replaced your cabin air filter.

If you have any issues doing this yourself, or you need more service advice, schedule an appointment to talk to the Chevy experts at DeLillo Chevrolet.

Chevy Reveals 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD at NTEA The Work Truck Show

2017 Ram 4500HD

NTEA The Work Truck Show

This March, Chevy revealed the eagerly-anticipated 2019 Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD at the NTEA Work Truck Show. These pickup trucks are mind-blowingly capable while also being distinctly customer-oriented. Chevy wanted to create trucks that are work-ready, offering a great driving experience while also being capable of handling worksite jobs with ease. At DeLillo Chevrolet, we think Chevy succeeded with these new medium-duty pickup trucks.

Chevy thoroughly thought out what customers want in a work-ready truck, taking input from truck drivers, technicians, Chevrolet dealers, and other experts. The new Silverado is incredibly powerful, featuring a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine with 350 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. While sitting in the driver’s seat, you will be privy to a superior driving experience, as one of the challenges Chevy was dedicated to overcoming was the fact that large trucks can be difficult to drive, in terms of maneuvering and handling.

The Silverado’s premium strength and maneuverability are matched by its smart interior that offers both superior comfort and advanced technology. The interior cabin is durable yet stylish and provides a welcome respite while on a worksite. It will also offer a fun infotainment system with Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™ compatibility, as well as an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot so you don’t have to worry about being out of range.

According to Chevrolet, the new Silverado trucks will head into production late this year, with order guides and pricing information announced this summer. Be sure to check in with us at DeLillo Chevrolet for more information.

Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD

Truck enthusiasts have been awaiting the debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD for some time now, but they won’t have to wait much longer. With a debut slated for March, the medium-duty models will appear at the Work Truck Show 2018. To generate even more hype, Chevrolet unveiled some teaser photos prior to the event.

The Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD teaser images show off a larger front clip. The chassis and suspension fit that of a much stronger truck than the existing Silverado models, and rightly so given the all-new model’s capability. Some styling cues from the current Silverado trucks, such as the headlights, will be very much the same on the new pickups.

The Work Truck Show 2018 runs from March 6th to the 9th and serves as the North America’s largest truck show. The all-new Silverado medium duty models will arrive with regular or crew cabs paired with two- or four-wheel drive. There will also be a number of wheelbases and weight ratings available, making the upcoming pickups some of the most versatile in the industry.

Keep your eyes peeled for the debut of Chevrolet’s all-new trucks!

We here at DeLillo Chevrolet can’t wait to see the Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD in all their glory.

Chevrolet Truck Lineup Turns 100

Chevrolet Truck Lineup Turns 100

Chevy has been around for a long time; that’s part of why it’s such a celebrated and integral part of American culture. But while iconic nameplates like the Camaro and Corvette have only been around since muscle cars had their heyday, the Chevrolet truck lineup – particularly the original Silverado and Suburban SUV, which uses a pickup truck platform – grew up with the American auto industry. The 2018 model year marks 100 years of the Silverado and Suburban nameplates, and Chevy is honoring them with anniversary special editions.

To celebrate the century-long spot Chevy truck have held in their model lineup, Chevrolet released the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado and Colorado Centennial Editions. They are only offered with the off-road ZL1 package, with additional extras like a special “Centennial Blue” paint color and bow-tie emblems on their grilles, front doors, and tailgates. Both models also feature 100-year badges prominently displayed.

Pricing has not yet been released for the Centennial Editions in the Chevrolet truck lineup, but their unveiling is kicking off at the Lone Star State gala at the Texas State Fair. Chevy has also stated that the Silverado and Colorado will be involved in some addition anniversary-related festivities over the next few months.

At DeLillo Chevrolet, we are proud to be part of such a long-standing legacy, and we can’t wait to see what’s to come with the Chevrolet truck lineup.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Reviews

2018 Chevrolet Equinox Reviews

Finding the right car for your lifestyle isn’t as easy as it may seem. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox reviews offer insight as to just how value- and family-driven the latest model is.

Reviews

Cars.com experts cited the new styling and compact design that put the Chevrolet Equinox in closer competition with competitors like the Nissan Rogue. The new model rolls out on a new platform and weighs in at 400 lb. less than the previous model. Owners tend to agree, giving the Equinox a 4.9/5.0 rating.

Motor Trend noted that the Equinox shares its gasoline engines with the mid-size Chevrolet Malibu. The impressive line of engines offers drivers the choice between fuel economy, performance, and a balance of the two. A vast array of active safety features makes the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox better suited for families too.

Powertrains

One of the largest updates in the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox comes in the form of the available powertrains. The old four-cylinder and V6 engines are gone for good. Three new powertrains take their place for the model year.

All models come equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers up to an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway.* Performance comes standard in the available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, that engine produces 252 horsepower.

The most unique engine of the bunch is the available 1.6-liter Turbo-Diesel four-cylinder engine. Capable of earning up to an EPA-estimated 39 mpg* on the highway, the diesel engine takes efficiency to new heights.

New 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE is an Engineering Marvel

The 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE is one of the fastest production Camaros ever made. The newest Camaro comes with a tuned powertrain and suspension, aerodynamic contours, a lightweight build, and more. The ZL1 even completed the famous Nürburgring track with a lap time of just 7:16.04. At DeLillo Chevrolet, we couldn’t be more excited about the new 2018 Camaro.

2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE - DeLillo Chevrolet - Huntington Beach, CA

CNET notes that the 2018 ZL1 1LE beat the previous Camaro’s lap time by a whopping 13.56 seconds—a considerable gap for any race car. New features include a carbon fiber wing that provides 80 percent more downforce. The front end has dive planes and a splitter to optimize airflow, while the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 produces 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the Multimatic DSSV® dampers keep the car stiff at high speeds.

“‘X’ decals are affixed to the sides of the mammoth rear wing of the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE,” said Jon Wong of Roadshow. “Chevrolet engineers say it’s to signify the model as the most extreme interpretation of the sixth-generation pony car. If you’re an enthusiast who measures a car by how well it romps around a racetrack, you may agree that those ‘X’ stickers are warranted with a Nürburgring lap time of 7:16.04.”

In addition to the many engineering marvels under the hood, it would be remiss of us not to mention the stunning exterior. The smooth black hood accentuates the front end, the headlights are bold and aggressive, and the fat tires imply raw power. It’s impossible not to fall in love with the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE at first sight.

The All-Electric Chevy Bolt EV Proves a Point Against Volkswagen

While your average enthusiast will tell you that a car needs good ol’ gasoline to be high-performing, the all-electric Chevy Bolt EV has a surprise in store for those fossil fuel fanboys.

all-electric Chevy Bolt EV - DeLillo Chevrolet - Huntington Beach, CA

The all-electric Chevy Bolt EV went head-to-head against the Volkswagen Golf GTI in a series of three races, delivering a true whooping to the VW in two out of three bouts. One race ended with a win for the Golf GTI by the skin of its teeth, but only because of a faulty start by the Bolt.

 

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is well-known for being a sprightly little hatchback with a lot more “oomph” than meets the eye, but that golden-child reputation didn’t help it much in this battle with the Bolt. The Chevy Bolt EV is as striking as its name implies, with impressive features such as 238 miles on a single charge and the Electronic Precision Shift gear system.*

 

If you’ve had that anti-electric attitude about the Bolt before, it’s time to take a look at this hot little hatchback with new eyes. It’s proving itself with its high-performance left-and-right, even being named the Motor Trend “Car of the Year” for 2017.

 

The Chevy Bolt EV is rated with 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, going from 0-60 in about 6.5 seconds. Pretty significant numbers for a car that guzzles zero gas! Stop by or give us a call at DeLillo Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Bolt EV.
