    Default 1.9cdti engine

    as lots of folk on here have them, can you say how long it takes for the engine to loosen up, having just acquired a new vectra c 1. 9 --150 . my mates car has done about 15000 and seems to produce the power much more readily , i know its early days yet as mine has only covered 500 miles yet.

    Take everything easy for the first 1000 miles

    I'd say keep the revs below 4000 for the first 1000 miles
    Check the oil level every day for the first month
    Keep braking applications as light as possible for the first 1000 miles

    I've always reckoned that an engine doesn't loosen up in the first year or 10K miles
    It should be that way anyway, you don't want too much shake, rattle, and roll at that stage...!

    Once an engine gets to three years or 60K miles then things start to go wrong, must be our throw away society
