Misunderstanding one: In the automobile engine running-in period should use the traditional lubricating oil, after the running-in period again for the mass lubricating oil and so on synthetic lubricating oil.
The truth: The new car can be used at all times by the mass lubricant. In the past, engine running-in was necessary to remove all metal scraps (known as cuttings) or abrasive that remained in the engine after processing, and to make the valve and washer in place. Compared with 10 or 20 years ago, today's engine tolerances are smaller, the machining is more sophisticated and the interior cleaner. Now the engine manufacturing technology does not need running-in period. Misunderstanding two: the use of public lubricants in new cars will lead to the failure of the vehicle warranty.
Truth: In addition to the Mazda rotor engine (because Mazda does not recommend the use of any synthetic lubricants), the use of Volkswagen lubricants will not cause the new car warranty service failure. For newly imported and domestically produced cars, Volkswagen lubricants are higher than the API and ILSA lubricant standards used. If you have any doubts, you may refer to the vehicle owner's manual or contact the car manufacturer for advice.
Since most new car warranty terms require a shorter maintenance cycle than the Volkswagen lubricant requires, the Volkswagen lubricant recommends that you follow the requirements of the owner's manual in the warranty period.
Refer to your vehicle maintenance manual for correct lubrication requirements and car maintenance cycles.
Misunderstanding three: Before replacing with the Volkswagen lubricant, need to clean the engine.
Truth: No special treatment is required when switching from conventional oil to use the mass lubricant.
Myth Four: Volkswagen lubricants need special oil filters.
The truth: Volkswagen lubricants are of course recommended that you use high-quality filters, but you can also use traditional mineral oil filters commonly used.
Myth Five: Motorcycles are not suitable for use in synthetic lubricants.
