3,000 miles. Will do it myself. New engines are only "New" once... and oil is cheap. You're not hurting anything by changing oil early (after break-in). By 3000 miles, the engine and rings should be broken in properly. I bought mine, so I just want the extra reassurance of fresh oil and a great filter.
After the first change, I will go by the Maintenance Monitor.
Im not sure if this is true but, I was told the oil that was put into our new engines have extra "Zinc"addictive for break- in purposes? That the longer we keep the original oil in our new engines the better. I kept my oil in my 2017 HR-V until the MM said 10% life left "@7,000" on the car.
I think it's a old tale. I asked the dealer and they said no... just plain Motor oil (synthetic) is in the engines. Like others though he did say to run with it's factory fill until at least 3000 miles to make sure the rings are broke in and such. I had already known that. But yeah, I don't think they add anything to the oil when they build the engine.
I’m considering using “Amsoil” because of its low “Noack” rating. Our Passports are direct injection, meaning the top side of the valves don’t get washed off with fuel. The oil vapor that comes from the oil pan that goes into the intake accumulates on top of the intake valve. The Noack test is to determine the evaporation loss when the oil is in the oil pan. The standard Noack rating for todays oils is less then 15.
I run Amsoil in my s2000 differential and Mobil One in its engine. All my other Honda's and lawn implements have been fed just about every type of engine oil and I never had problems or noticed any differences. Thanks for posting the chart.
