Re: first oil change in new a new engine
When my Selespeed was new I asked the Alfa garage to do an oil and filter change at 2000kms, they said that the first filter fitted by the factory was different from those used for service and shouldnt be changed until the 5000kms service, anyway I got them to change the oil at least.
My Landcruiser was first service with oil and filter change etc at 2000kms and then 5000kms and every 5000kms afterwards......
I always think that an early oil change cant do any harm and is relatively cheap especially when the car is new
I now change the oil every 10000kms or 6 months - the weather here is very harsh so better safe than sorry
