Keeping Your Car Clean

I still remember the day that I bought my first car. I thought it was the most perfect vehicle in the world, and I vowed to care for it diligently. Unfortunately, within a few days I had forgotten about my promise, and I started tossing fast food wrappers in the back like everyone else. After awhile I realized that neglecting my car was turning the inside into a garbage pit, and I decided to learn how to take better care of my vehicle. I took a class on auto detailing, and it really helped me to turn things around. I want to teach you what I learned, so you should read this blog.

Dropping in a New Durable Diesel Engine and What You Need to Know About Breaking It In


If you are planning on dropping a new engine in your truck, you want it to be durable and reliable. Therefore, it is also important to know how to gently break in the new engine to prevent problems with wear and damage. The following steps are the steps that you will want to take to break in your new Duramax performance engine:

Start the Engine Easy and Gently

Once the engine has been installed in your truck, you want to be gentle with it. Get everything connected and turn the key over to start the engine. Let the engine idle for a few minutes before giving it gas, but do not give it a lot of fuel to raise the RPMs. Instead, let the engine idle for a few minutes at lower RPMs, and then turn it off to inspect the engine and other components for leaks before taking it for a test drive.

Test Drive and Inspect for Leaks and Problems

Once you have inspected for leaks and taken care of any problems, you are ready to take your truck for its first test drive with the new engine. You will want to take the truck around the block a few times and gently drive it not to put too much strain on the engine. Once the engine has had a chance to warm up, take it back and park it. Let the engine rest, and then check your truck for leaks again.

Avoid Loads and Strain Until the Engine Is Broken In

Once you have done the test drive and fixed any problems that may have surfaced, you will be ready to start driving your truck. You want to avoid long hours of driving and pulling heavy loads until your engine has been broken in for a couple of weeks. This will allow the engine to adjust to your truck slowly.

Wait to Test the Limits of Your Engine

You will also want to give the engine time to break in before you decide to test its limits. Therefore, you want to wait to raise engine RPMs or to pull the maximum weight that your truck and engine can handle. Once the engine has had time, you will be able to pull heavier loads and test the full capabilities of your new Duramax engine.

Properly breaking in your new diesel engine will ensure it has the power you need and the durability you want. If you need a new durable diesel engine, contact a Duramax diesel engine supplier to get the motor and everything you need to install it and break it in.
