Does anyone know what dodge puts in these cars for break in oil? When do you suggest to change it? The book said just to break the engine in for 500miles but never said to change the oil. I've owned the car for almost a month and its has 150 miles on it. My dad says to change it at the 500 mile mark to get any pieces of metal out that are there from break in. How many miles before you did your first oil change?
Run the oil between 500 and 800 miles and then change it with filter.
As far as the same brand idea, don't know where that comes from! We purchase from Lubrizol, Infinium, Octel, Ethyl, and Univar.
There are standard stock off the shelf oils that contain the same ingredients in varying amounts. There is no need to make sure it is a specific brand.....if you are talking about off the shelf.
I know this as I have been designing lubricants for just over 20 years and involved with all the major manufacturers and also the racing industry.
Now if you do want a truly superior lubricant then yes, QuantumBlue is what you want. From the 800 miles on up, we can design a product for you that is changed every 10k to 12k miles and produce virtually zero wear on the engine for as long as you own it. Add ACES IV to the mix and the car will simply not wear while you go to extended drain intervals! Cars going 12k, 14k, 16k and 18k miles on ONE oil change! :bigthumb:
