Gentlemen,
Would you change oil on your new motor after the break in time was completed (break in done per manufacturer procedure)?
OR.
Would you do your first oil change at the prescribed interval, as per the manufacturer?

I can see and understand the argument for both choices. Personally, for gears I do it early, for motors I tend to do it per manufacturer specs.
I'll check your oil...tumblr_inline_p04tv4xZ5b1qac9hu_540.gif

New motors I would be inclined to stretch the oil change until later.
Broken in motors I've heard arguments that too frequent oil changes do more damage than good.
The fuck do I know, I'm just a hack carpenter.

Depends upon the model. In a high performance car, I would say yes, irrelevant on manufacturer recommendations. Most engines are built to go with manufacturer specs, so if it's a normal car, not high performance, not being driven hard, I'd allow the dealership to do what they do for the first oil change just to make sure it's on record in case of any issues in the future with warranty claims. Most dealerships at a bare minimum cover the first oil change free of charge, so it's not like you're paying more for an oil change. If you have a car with free maintenance for the warranty period like a BMW, I'd do all maintenance at the dealership.

I am confused here


Are you a women asking for advice about oil changes ?


If you are a women then I understand you asking and creating this thread



If you are a man and don't know what to do then you will never know and actually explaining it would go way over your head



But yeah just cut the filter LOL that should do it.

I can't wait until Tesla's become more common just so we can stop listening to every DUDEBRO mechanic talk about how he changes his own oil.

It's like CrossFit . They will be sure to let you know that they change their own oil .


Every single damn time

With modern synthetic, option B is the preferred way. Only manufactures calling for the “break-in” change is motorcycle manufactures where the motorcycle utilizes a wet clutch. Bought a brand new Toyota and didn’t change it until the 10k service. If it fucks up, that’s warranty.
