Breaking in a New Engine
- extend your engine life with Amsoil!
Lets cover the basics of
breaking in a new engine first.
The engine break-in issue is the subject of much controversy as everyone
seems to have their opinion on when an engine is considered fully broken in.
The information we provide
is based on the results of engineering studies
as well as many years of experience and teardown analysis on test vehicles.
The differences between a vehicle that was properly and fully broken in and
one that was not can often be hard to detect, yet there are tell-tale signs
of this but they are not easily detected except in all but the most extreme
situations. The subject of what occurs during the break-in process can
easily be the subject of a 100 page report therefore what we cover in this
web site page is only the essential points you need to know.
Breaking in an engine is a process of properly wearing-in
pistons/cylinders/rings, bearings, valves, camshaft, lifters, rockers,
etc... In addition, part of the breaking in process is not only wearing-in
and seating the internal engine components but also stress relieving the
components as well. Crankshafts, connecting rods, pistons, blocks etc...
have many stresses due to the casting or forging process, machining and
welding process. We have viewed and measured these stresses, called fringes,
using what is called lazer holography. These stresses are properly
reduced/eliminated by costly and time consuming heat aging as well as shot
peening and or high frequency vibration on a very specialized bedplate for
an extended period of time. For production applications this is cost and
time prohibitive. Therefore, the next best thing is exposing your engine to
multiple heating and cooling cycles under various load and RPM's, which is
described in the following paragraph. The heating and cooling break in
process continues over a period of time and does not need to be run on
Breaking in a new engine
is the one area that petroleum oil is better for than synthetics. You see,
petroleum oil has a very low film strength which is ideal for breaking in a
new engine. That is why we recommend you run the factory installed petroleum
oil for about the first 500 miles.
Further heat cycling break-in will continue during the multiple heating and
cooling cycles from driving your vehicle under varying RPM and engine load
conditions and then shutting it down for a long period of time to let it
cool completely. The multiple heating and cooling cycles are a extremely
important factor in properly breaking in a new engine and are often an
overlooked factor in the total break-in process. These heating and cooling
cycles achieve what is called stress relieving. Back in the "old days" of
engine manufacturing, after casting and before an engine block was machined,
it would be set outside for several months to age, during which stress
relieving occurred naturally, then the block was machined, which helped to
produce a better engine than one that was machined immediately after
By changing the factory installed oil and filter after the first 500 miles
you will also be removing the initial wear-in particulates present in the
oil and filter. The reason for this is that during initial wear-in there is
very high particulate contamination in the oil. These particulates consist
mainly of microscopic particles of aluminum, bronze, copper, lead and iron,
plus soot particles and other by-products of combustion in your oil. Your
filter cannot filter out all these small particulates as many are sub-micron
size and too small for the filter to trap, BUT they are also small enough to
fit between your bearing and other internal clearances and cause wear. That
is why we recommend to that in order to properly break-in a new engine,
regardless of what your new car salesman or dealership personnel tell you,
is to perform the first oil and filter change at 500 miles.
You've paid a lot of
money for your new vehicle, learn about the best oil to use to extend
your engine life far beyond what the manufacture intended!
Once you have
installed AMSOIL you will notice all of the following benefits:
Easier cold weather starting, cold weather pumpability and circulation,
smoother engine performance and more horsepower, reduced exhaust
emissions, superior wear protection, improved fuel economy, extended
engine life, extended starter life, excellent engine cleanliness, long
drain intervals, longer spark plug life, reduced engine temperatures,
reduced oil consumption, excellent resistance to sludge, coke, varnish
deposits (Thermal Stability), reduced/eliminated piston groove sticking,
reduced/eliminated valve sticking, superior shear stability, superior
resistance to viscosity increase (Volatility Resistance), superior film
strength, money and time savings. You will not get any of these benefits
with conventional petroleum oil.
Converting to AMSOIL synthetic motor oil is easy.
Some of the most frequent questions people ask us about AMSOIL are, what is
required in order to convert to AMSOIL, how long do I have to wait before
installing AMSOIL in a new engine, and what can I expect to notice once
converted to AMSOIL? Here are our answers in a detailed explanation:
Converting a vehicle to AMSOIL synthetic motor oil is fairly simple, but there are
a few things you need to be aware of. First, if you have a brand new vehicle
we recommend that you run a short cycle of petroleum oil on a gas engine
passenger car or light truck (typically 500 miles) and approximately 5000
miles on a diesel engine before installing AMSOIL.
This doesn't mean that you can't
install AMSOIL sooner
, as many OEM's install synthetics as a factory fill,
it simply means these are our recommendations based on our extensive
engineering studies and knowledge of this topic. Today's modern engine
manufacturing and materials technology is much more sophisticated than in
Regular gas engine passenger cars and light truck engines do not
require the extensive break in process many people think they do.
addition, by the time you get your new vehicle the engine has already been
through a series of hot tests also run on in-plant chassis rolls testers to
check functionality of all systems and then driven around the plant and
railhead in order to get the vehicle to the dealer, which also helps
accelerate breaking in of the engine.
AMSOIL Engine Flush:
In a new engine
with less than approximately 20,000 miles it is not imperative that AMSOIL
Engine Flush be used. In an engine with more than 20,000-30,000 miles and
beyond, that has been using petroleum oil the entire time, we highly
recommend using the AMSOIL Engine Flush. What the engine flush will do is
remove the petroleum oil sludge & varnish deposits from your engine and
properly prepare your engine for AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil. You simply pour
in one can for every 5-6 quarts of sump capacity (one can is sufficient for
most all passenger cars & light trucks, with the exception of diesels), and
let the engine idle for about 15 minutes then drain the oil and remove the
filter while the oil is still warm. Do not drive the vehicle with the engine
flush installed. If you have an extremely dirty or high mileage engine then
we recommend installing a new engine oil filter prior to adding the flush so
that you have full capacity of the filter available for capturing and
holding the dirt particles that the flush removes. AMSOIL's Engine Flush is
a detergent based flush with some kerosene and other petroleum distillates
that act as the carrier for the flushing and cleaning agents. The detergent
used is a 2-butoxyethanol, glycol ether and is essentially a very
concentrated form of the detergents used in motor oil.
AMSOIL Synthetics are naturally cleansing and also high in detergents. What
happens when you operate an engine on petroleum oil, the sludge and varnish
deposits that occur as a result of using petroleum oil will accumulate
around your pistons, rings, seals, valvetrain, etc.. and actually help to
seal your engine. This type of petroleum oil deposit "sealing" can lead to
problems such as piston ring sticking, sludge deposits in valve covers and
oil pans which can lead to decreased oil pump capacity output and
restriction of critical oil galley passageways over an extended period of
time, plus many more issues which we will not go into detail in this
discussion. These deposits are highly detrimental to the proper function
and longevity of your engine.
What occurs when you use AMSOIL Engine Flush is that it cleans all these
deposits out from your engine, both the highly accumulated deposits as well
as the sub-micron deposits which have accumulated in the microscopic valleys
of the aluminum, copper, iron, etc.. engine components. If you do not use
the engine flush the AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil will do essentially the same
thing the flush does but take a much longer period of time. During this
time, which is greatly accelerated when using the AMSOIL Engine Flush, the
engine is going through a phase where these deposits are being removed, or
have been removed. What exists now is that these microscopic valleys in the
iron, aluminum, copper, etc.., are now empty. It takes some time for the
molecular structure of the AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oil to fill these
microscopic valleys. This can be as short as a few hundred miles or as long
as a few thousand miles, depending on the internal condition of your engine.
During this phase you may, or may not, notice slightly increased oil
consumption BUT only until the uniform molecular structure of the AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil can re-seal these microscopic valleys. Most people do
not even notice this phase, but we like to make people aware of it so they
understand this process. This is perfectly normal and the oil is doing
exactly what it was engineered to do.
You may have heard the myth that synthetic oil can cause engine seals to
leak. Synthetics absolutely do not cause seals to leak, they simply may
reveal an existing blockage that is caused by the use of petroleum oil.
Synthetics will clean out sludge caused by petroleum, exposing the leak. What happens is exactly
as we described above. If you have a very old engine that has been running
petroleum oil, and it also leaks, for example around the rear-main oil seal,
then chances are it will leak more with synthetic oil because of it cleaning
out the sludge. Either the seal lip is worn down or the seal is hardened and
cracked from old age, heat and ozone. This blockage is commonly
referred to as a false seal. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are recommended for
use in mechanically sound engines! If you have a vehicle that leaks oil
excessively, then repair the seal prior to converting to AMSOIL.
