Engine Break-in for 2014?
Is it still a thing to engine break-in a Raptor at 2014 model? And is it safe to jack up and store for a month while am abroad and mileage still under 1000.
For a month, I wouldn't bother doing anything except maybe a car cover if it's in a dusty area.
Engine break in according to manual is drive it like normal for the truck to learn your driving. No real break in period. I wouldn't redline until at least 100-200 miles on it.
i was told not to tow for the first 500-1000miles.
I drove it easy the first 500 miles with lots of mixed driving and did my first oil change right at 1000 miles. You might want to think about adding an oil separator because I'm surprised how much mine has collected even being N/A.
For my initial 500 miles I just made sure I didn't use cruise control and was always fluctuating the RPM gauge. Done that with most every car I got new and have had no problems since. Always put fresh oil in at 1000 miles as well, as I do not know how long the truck sat or any other reason.
May or may not be proven but it's just a process I'm used to
