First 1500 km

The more carefully you will treat the engine at the beginning of its operation, the more you will be satisfied with its work subsequently.

Therefore the first 1500 km you should move with a variable speed of the movement and at the variable speed of the engine.

Avoid during this period of big loading (the movement on full gas) and high turns of the engine (no more than 2/3 maximum turns on each transfer).

In due time switch transfers!

At cars with the automatic transmission (AT) it is desirable not to overcome an accelerator pedal a point of resistance (kickdown). You do not make manual switching to lower transfer for the purpose of braking. Install the AT selector lever in provisions of restriction of ranges of switching only at low speeds (on mountain passes).

After the first 1500 km it is possible to increase the speed of the movement and pace of the engine gradually to extreme values.
