Chevy 350 Motors for Automobiles and Marine Engines

Chevrolet is undoubtedly the first choice of worldwide automobile customers when it comes to the purchase of car, SUV, truck, marine engines, vans or even hybrid modeled cars. Many hybrid models are also released by Chevrolet Motors in the year 2012. Frankly my preference is a shiny new Chevy Equinox, Suburban, Avalanche or even a Cruze. Well evidently the customers have the luxury of choosing any Chevy vehicle which suits my budget and requirement.

Moving onto Chevy 350 motors, they are used in many automobiles like cars, trucks and even recreational vehicles. Ever since it was introduced into Chevy Camaro in 1967, it became the widely used small block in many Chevy engines. Today the General Motors use its invention in every machine of its partner automobile models like GMC and Buick. The first preference for a small block V8 was not Chevy 350 earlier but gradually it became popular.

As time passed by, General Motors manufactured many derived instruments of Chevy 350 motor for its other brands with Saturn being an exception to this. But nothing seems to hold the number 1 position than this motor. Even the used and rebuilt Chevy engines stand in Top 10 List of most wanted spare parts in the market today.

Today the Chevy 350 is also available as a spare or replacement part also. There are not many technical problems encountered by Chevy 350 owners. Yet the motor definitely requires frequent maintenance and servicing of it. Even the used engines serve the new models well but for some over-heating problems. Contrary to this, there were complaints that the engine delay starts in winter. Overcoming these minor problems, Chevy 350 still happens to be the favorite of automobile owners.

There is a high demand for these Chevy 350 engines in the marine machinery as well. There were comparisons of this product with Ford 289 Engine. But Ford Motors couldn’t beat the popularity of this one for sure. The success of this machine is owed to its design and the fuel efficiency it provides to the cars. It is due to this reason that Chevy 350 motor is also called 5.7 liter engine. The Chevy ZZ4 is acting as the replacement for its original motor and is the latest model of the same. It yields a horsepower of 355 at the rate of 5,250 RPM.

One can purchase any used or new products of Chevy 350 and its derivatives from various websites today. The company’s official web store does not provide any spare parts or Chevy engines unfortunately. There are other private and government owned vendors/dealers from whose websites Chevy machines and engines are available at very reasonable prices.

Chevy Silverado Sale for Engines Now Includes 5.3 and 5.7 Vortec Motors from Used Engine Retailer


Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

Silverado is one of the brands in the Chevrolet series of trucks that are marketed to U.S. buyers. Engine replacements for this truck series are now expected to be simpler to research online thanks to the Got Engines company. This company has now added Chevy Silverado sale prices for its 5.3 and 5.7 series Vortec engines online.

This truck motor sale is an expanded measure for pickup truck owners, salvage company owners, warranty providers and other buyers of preowned engines to benefit.

The Vortec engine platform is still found in many of the pickup trucks produced since the 1980s and remains an engine variant that is in demand. The sale pricing that is arranged for all buyers by the Got Engines company is expected to present better pricing online.

“Silverado trucks that use the GMT platform for construction often use the V6 or V8 builds in the Vortec engine base to supply the range of power expected for truck owners,” said a GotEngines.com company salesman.

The mileage ratios that can be found with some preowned engines can be one element that a consumer considers when replacing a motor in a truck or SUV. Not all used engines have a low point of mileage and could be at an increased risk of breakdown.

The GotEngines.com sale that is announced for the Silverado brand of motors includes lower than standard mileage counts for engines that are produced in the Vortec brand. These units are evaluated and validated by company staff before these are arranged for public sale.

“The sale pricing that we’re featuring for all buyers online can be accessed by phone through our expanded customer service network to help bring a cheaper priced option to buyers who do not research on our website,” the salesman included.

The Got Engines company has arranged more than one successful sale program in 2013 and plans to continue with price lowering initiatives are in the planning stages for a 2014 roll out. All company announcements are now made through media sources or can be accessed on the company website at http://gotengines.com/blog.

About GotEngines.com

The GotEngines.com company supplies motors that are in preowned condition for prices that are currently under the average retail marketed by most automotive companies selling replacement engines online. This company has remained a top distributor of used condition engines based on foreign and American builds available. The GotEngines.com company has constructed and updated its resourceful website online and more than 1000 engine pages are included for online research. The company customer service team responds promptly to all requests for pricing and additional information about all engines that are listed for immediate sale online.

Costco Auto Program, General Motors Offer Sells Record Number of Vehicles in First Two Weeks


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013

The Costco Auto Program today announced more than 2,000 Costco members purchased a vehicle in the first two weeks of the GM Limited-Time Offer; a record high when compared with the previous two offers with General Motors.

This year, the promotion offers vehicles from all GM brands by adding Cadillac to the lineup. The GM Limited-Time Offer features GM Supplier and Friends Pricing, all publicly available manufacturer rebates and incentives for which they qualify, as well as a $ 500 Costco Cash Card* when Costco members purchase or lease one of the following 14 qualifying GM models between Oct. 15, 2013, and Jan. 2, 2014:


Cadillac: ATS, Escalade, SRX and XTS
GMC: Acadia, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL
Chevrolet: Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Traverse and Volt
Buick: Enclave    

“We’ve partnered with GM to offer Costco members special pricing on their vehicles the past two winters and both offers did very well,” said John Conlon, Costco Services Director. “During the 2012 winter GM promotion, more than 15,300 Costco members used the offer to purchase a vehicle. That’s nearly triple the amount of vehicles sold during the 2011 GM promotion. It’s clear, members see the value in the program and these limited-time offers. It’s a great way to help members get into a new vehicle at a great price, raise awareness about our auto program and showcase various automotive brands.”

Providing Costco members with everyday savings on vehicles, the Costco Auto Program has more than 3,000 participating dealerships around the country. Occasionally, the Costco Auto Program partners with manufacturers to offer Costco members a special savings opportunity, like the GM Limited-Time Offer, beyond the typical savings they normally receive through the program. To ensure superior customer service, the Costco Auto Program trains and certifies Authorized Dealer Contacts at participating dealerships. The program also provides Costco members with online tools to research vehicles, locate a participating dealer and make a purchase at a low, prearranged price.

“At Costco, every service and product we provide is offered with the Costco member’s best interest in mind,” said Conlon. “The Costco Auto Program has been providing Costco members with great service and value for nearly 25 years. Special promotions, like the GM Limited-Time Offer, are a great way to remind members about this unique service while providing additional benefits on their vehicle purchase.”

The Costco Auto Program recently wrapped up a promotion with Volvo, which ran from April 12 through July 31, 2013. The first joint offer between the Costco Auto Program and Volvo to include the entire lineup generated strong member interest – more than tripling the number of vehicles sold when compared to the 2010 holiday offer on XC90 and XC60 Volvo models.
