It’s important that you follow the right break-in procedure when your engine is new. Doing so will help ensure that you get the most life and use out of your vehicle. Not doing so can limit the engine’s lifespan and possibly cause damage. Here’s what to do:

  • Avoid sudden stops in the first 200 miles of driving.

  • Don’t tow anything for the first 500 miles.

  • Don’t drive fast for the first 1,000 miles.

  • Avoid suddenly slowing down for the first 1,000 miles.

  • Avoid using only low gears for the first 1,000 miles.

  • Keep your speeds varied for the first 1,000 miles (don’t drive at a constant speed).
