I won't do that.Originally posted by Turbocharged@Aug 12 2005, 09:45 PM
I've heard people said that you should let your brand new car (engine) run overnight (like 6-8 hrs), so that every engine component can get all the parts running smoothly.
There was another thread about breaking in. The idea is, run the engine as HARD as possible for the firt 20 miles, then break in the other 980 miles normally. It has something to do with the rings being sealed better this way. Go find it, it's somewhere in this forum.
Yeah do oil change after you break in. My salesman (and the manual) tell me to give him a call after 1,000 miles for a check up. It's complimentary.
Also, you can break in the breaks, too. The idea is, go up to 80 mph when you are breaking in your car. Then slam the break as hard as possible. THis way you break in the breaks and they'll be more efficient. Do it only once or twice I think. But the hard part is, finding a place where you go up to 80mph then come to a complete stop like that.
