Break-In Recipe from my Company's division that builds powerplants:

1. 500 Miles: Oil change and Filter. I keep the filter, and cut it in half. Look for metal particles in the filter material.

2. 1000 Miles: Oil change and filter. Replace tranny fluid.

At this point you can pretty much bet you've flushed out any crud left over from manufacturing. Yes, there's a good bet there is some crud in the engine.

3. 3000 Miles. Oil change and filter again. At this point you pick up the regular maint. cycle. Switch HERE to a synthetic oil if you wish.

4. Use a synthetic oil if you live way up North, or way South, or drive like an unchained banshee.

5. Mobil 1 is their preference (and mine), but pricey.

No Break-In Lube

Our engine folks say break-in lube isn't used anymore on new gasoline engines.

The point is to flush any manufacturing dirt from the new engine and transmission.

I guess another point is how long you intend to keep you MDX. If you're leasing, who cares?

Tush?

My tush never counts. Only the wife's tush counts.
