10 precautions for new car running-in

1. The speed should not be too high

Compared with the maximum speed of civilian vehicles generally at 6000+, it is sufficient to keep the speed within 4000 rpm during the running-in period.

2. Warm up the car before departure

Warm up the car for 1 minute before departure, and avoid driving with the accelerator pedal for a few minutes after departure, not only during the break-in period, but also in the long run is beneficial to the car.

3. Shift gears quickly

The manual gearbox shifts gears frequently to keep the speed within the good power output range of the engine, which not only avoids excessive speed, but also prevents speed-up at high-end and low-speed.

4. Speed limit

During the running-in period, the speed of the vehicle should not exceed 120km/h. To put it bluntly, it is better to avoid the problem of excessive engine speed.

5. Avoid overloading

Overloading will damage the springs and shock absorbers, and will increase the load on the engine, which is not conducive to engine running-in.

6. Reasonably control the throttle

The so-called reasonable control is to avoid big ups and downs. Be gentle to reduce the working pressure of the engine.

7. Avoid cruise control

Long-distance running at different speeds can allow the various metal parts in the engine to fully expand with heat and contract with cold to achieve the best condition of running-in.

8. The automatic transmission also needs to change gears

The automatic gearbox is manually shifted, and the speed is reduced in a long way, and the manual downshift is used to avoid the gearbox running at the highest gear for a long time, so that each group of gears can be relatively evenly run-in.

9. Avoid frequent braking

Gradually run-in the brake disc, and the brake disc has reached a good fit. Frequent driving may cause uneven wear of the brake pads, resulting in noise and vibration in the future.

10. Don’t drive at high speed

Since the chassis has not been completely run-in, it is dangerous to drive at high speed during the run-in period. In addition, metal debris in the first tank of engine oil will aggravate internal wear.
