What is the break-in procedure for our cars? Motor and tranny (auto and manual).

If anyone has a link to an online resource that has all this info please post it, I could use the reading!

it will be spelled out in your Owner's manual, but a condensed version, keep it below 70 no hard starts and stops, no engine braking by downshifting and vary the speed often no long drives at any constant speed, do this for the first 500 miles and then go for it ....
others will tell you different but i say go with what GM tells you...:thumbs:

The manual sez: Not to exceed 70 mph for the first 500 miles, nor us cruise control. No downshifting or burnouts, and lest we forget no hard breaking or stops. Did I cover everything?

Or break it in like you want it to run.

I chose door #l, it worked for me, buried the speedo the other day! Oops, can I say that?:rolleyes: :D

Got our 500 miles in between Noon Saturday and Noon today. Lots of fun getting there. Tonight Jack stomped on it and I was impressed.
