Best break-in practices for the 4B11

<< < (5/5)

Same here, and the orange R will start blinking if i hit the gas before it engages.

LOL I had my 09 GTS since November 08, I have 29k, I got mines with 6 miles on it

When I break-in my new cars I use conventional oil for the first 5k miles changing the oil at 1000, 3000 and at 5000 I switch to Mobil 1 synthetic for the life of the engine.  I also vary my speeds mostly by driving city streets with varying speed limits and traffic lights.  My morning commute is only 10 miles so I will take the freeway occasionally too.  My friends and I use this method in several makes & models with positive results.  My RPM's generally do not exceed 3-4k during the first 1000 miles.  This is my take at breaking in an engine, maybe too cautious but oh well.

I noticed this with my RA. I don't know if it's supposed to do that because of the SST tranny, but I just deal with it.

My 2009 RA has nearly 30K on it, and I think that mine is only getting better with age.
