Proper break-in is important for the reliability, performance, and longevity of your vehicle. Part of the way you make sure your engine lasts is through how you drive your new car for those first thousand miles (check your owner's manual for the exact mileage). There are several things which you should avoid doing, including giving your vehicle full throttle, taking your engine to redline, using cruise control, traveling short distances, and towing. We'll talk about various different engine break-in procedures, used in the Nissan GT-R, Acura NSX, Chevrolet Corvette, and even a land-speed record car built by an FCA engineer as a hobby.

You forget to tell when it's best to put the 1st oil-change...also very important.

I’m never gonna buy a car brand new why am I watching this?
Let alone within the first 30k miles let alone let alone the first thousand.
Don't crash it

The only proper way to seat a piston ring is to progressivly bring the engine to 100% load at diffrent rpm ranges for several minuets at a time on a dyno. That is fact. Failure to do so can lead to premature cylinder glazing. Atleast that is proper way to break in diesel truck engines. Im fairly certain it would apply to the smaller gasoline engines to some extent
I actually didn't know you needed to break-in your engine. As a first-time brand-new buyer next month, perfect timing! Thanks.
You not going to tell me I can't floor it!!!! *Floors it*

*Engine revs*
*break squeaks*

Ok, luckily I was on a test drive....

So generally speaking, keep below 4000 revs for ‘X’ miles and vary the load in that range.
Great... well there goes my car.. watching after 3000 miles...

I drove my brandnew car with 120kms per hour. Is that ok? I mean its my first car and got it from another town and its kinda far from where I live so I had to at least run it a little fast. If I did it wrong, is there any chances that I could just do the right thing over? Or maybe its just too late? Thanks man!

My newly rebuilt z24 refused to seat the rings. Only ran for ten seconds before plugs got totally oil coated. After 3 tear downs with no results I dry seated the rings and watched before my eyes as the dark areas became shiny, seated left head off, dropped the pan and oiled the bearings.

do these brake in rules count on hybrids with CVTs? I have a RAV4 Hybrid and I think I used the cruise control on the way home from the dealer since I was still getting used to the CVT! lol

Not necessary on todays modern cars any more maybe in the 70s or 80s

You make fine points but the piston and rings arent the problem for engine break in. Chrome moly rings did away with the magical ring break in you speak of. The use a specific crosshatch of the cylinder wall and a chrome moly ring set mean it almost instantly seats the rings.

The corvette uses full synthetic oil (mobil 1) from the factory its so slippery that you follow a specific pattern of break in to insure that the engine doesn't have oiling issues. Which brings us right back around to the beginning. The break in procedure insures that oiling the engine is correct and that any left over particulate matter in the engine goes into the oil filter instead a bearing.
Nice to see a young man without any nasty TRAMP STAMPS or HOG RINGS.
easy to say tough to do when you work and shop only 2 miles from your house
Hi, thanks for this great video. I bought a brand new Jeep SRT 2019 with 19miles yesterday and turn on the engine with the car stopped and reved it past 5000rpm to hear the sound of the exhaust. The salesman did not tell me anything about what you have explained in the video and I feel bad that I did it after watching this video :(. I am going for a test drive today and I am now afraid of causing any damage to the engine. By the way, when he opened the lid to show me the engine I noticed a strange noise coming from the left hand side of the engine. I could tell that it was not coming from the fans but it seeme like it was coming from the pistons (not sure)... Should I be concerned about it or it is just natural from HEMI 6.4L Engines? Thanks
