What Is The Break In Procedure For Your Engine?

Check out the graphic below for a walk-through of our recommended break-in procedure:

The break-in process for Powertrain Products rebuilt engines, step by step:

  1. No synthetic oil for the first 3,000 miles. Be sure to check oil levels at each fill up as the engine will consume 1-2 quarts during break-in.
  2. Run the engine for 500 miles and then change the oil.
  3. Run the engine for an additional 2500 miles and change the oil again.
  4. Typical city driving during the first 3,000 miles is ideal. You want stop-and-go with varying rpm’s during this period. If highway driving is a must for you, then make sure you vary your speeds and rpm every few minutes. If you do live in a hilly area, this may happen by default.
  5. After 3,000 miles, your engine will be broken in and can be run on synthetic oil at this time if you prefer.
