    Attached is my Blackstone oil report for my 2016 charger hellcat which had 1652 miles when I changed the oil. It looks like normal wear for an early oil change on a new engine.

    I'm not familiar with this on civilian engines, I (we) used to do this in the military on our various gearboxes on our helos.

    This makes me think that the concept I have that you should change your new engines oil often is true...

    Anybody got thoughts on this? Every new vehicle I've had (all three of them...), I've changed the oil at ~500miles and then at ~1000miles thereafter for about 4 or 5 changes... All of them are still going very strong after well in excess of 100K...

    I've heard arguments the other way that this doesn't allow for breakin to ever happen....

    So should we have oil changed early? I have 960 miles on my Challenger Hellcat

    I'm going to, but you know about opinions, they're just like asses, we all have them and they all stink...


    :)


    Maybe it's an issue of how much time and money you've got and where you want to put it, I just got done with a conversation about octane. How do you want to spend your money and what do you believe you'll get out of it. For me, getting as much of the initial "grit" out of there seems like it can only be a good thing...

    I think it was Carol Shelby that said he thought it was a colossal blunder that automotive oil filters have a by-pass built into them (my paraphrase). Change your oil/oil-filter often enough that you never (minimize) risk using it....

    I had my oil changed at 500 miles to see if it had any visible metal,I saw none and was with the car the whole time,then I had it changed at 3000 miles,and plan on doing that for as long as the cat is mine.I get 2 year free maintenance and then it will be on my dime,thats why I buy a little oil each week at Auto Zone for $6.00 a quart.

    I figured I would do an early oil change due to new engine break in metals and get a baseline on the oil and engine. I am going to do another oil change at 3000 miles and have it tested again. I expect it to settle down then or the next one. It's perfectly normal to have high amounts of metals in a new engine, the important part is doing some extra oil changes to clean it out. I'm not worried, it runs perfect and I have an extended warranty. I hope others have their oil tested too so we can compare.

    This is why I think Dodge should dump the oil after the dyno shakedown!

    How do you know they don't. I have not been in the that engine plant but they used to hot test engines without the pan. When I worked at the GM trans. plant, we did the same. Trannys were tested without the pans and fluid was heavily filtered.

    I just changed my oil for the first time at 2500 miles and will put it to bed for the winter next week. Sooner is always better than later.

    Yes, sooner is always better for the first couple of oil changes, my test results are proof of that.
