Proper run-in

Question : I HEARD that it's important to do a proper engine run-in for a new car.

Checking from the Internet, I see conflicting responses to this topic.

Some experts suggest to high rev the engine as much as possible, while others suggest the opposite.

Can you provide a detailed guide on how to do a proper engine run-in for a 2.0 Honda Civic ?

Answer : Modern engines actually need very little running in as they are already bench-run on an engine dynamometer after assembly and power checked.

Therefore, what one needs to do with a new car is to drive the car at reasonable speeds and progressively pulling more revs as the mileage increases up the first service, usually 1,000 km.

Try not to run for a long periods at high engine revs until the first service as all new mechanical devices, however well manufactured, will still have rough surfaces that need to be worn down smooth.
