Engine Break-In Guide

A replacement engine is a big investment that you’ll want to protect for years to come. To help you maximize the life of your new engine, a proper break-in period is key. At Powertrain Products, we help you understand every step of the break-in process with this handy guide and graphic!

  1. Understanding Why: A gentle break-in period helps all the freshly machined parts seal tightly to one another.
  2. Use The Right Oil: You should use ONLY conventional oil in the factory recommended weight during break-in.
  3. Time For An Oil Change: Keep a watchful eye on your oil levels throughout the break-in period, and do your first oil change around 500 miles – with conventional oil!
  4. Keep It Moving: Operate your engine gently for a while, avoiding frequent startups and revving while idling.
