Skoda Fabia: Running in

Skoda Fabia Owners Manual

New engine

The engine has to be run in during the first 1 500 kilometres.

Up to 1 000 kilometres

  • Do not drive faster than 3/4 of the maximum speed of the gear in use, i.e. 3/4 of the maximum permissible engine speed.
  • No full throttle.
  • Avoid high engine speeds.
  • Do not tow a trailer.

From 1 000 up to 1 500 kilometres

Gradually increase the power output of the engine up to the full speed of the gear engaged, i.e. up to the maximum permissible engine speed.

The red scale on the rev counter indicates the range in which the system begins to limit the engine speed.

During the first operating hours the engine has higher internal friction than later until all of the moving parts have harmonized. The driving style which you adopt during the first approx.1 500 kilometres plays a decisive part in the success of running in your car.

Never drive at unnecessarily high engine speeds even after the running-in period.

On vehicles fitted with a manual gearbox, at the very latest shift up into the next gear when the red area is reached. Observe the recommended gear » page 28, Recommended gear. Very high engine speeds when accelerating (accelerator) are automatically restricted » .

In vehicles with manual transmission, do not drive at unnecessarily low engine speeds. Shift down a gear when the engine is no longer running smoothly. Observe the recommended gear » page 28, Recommended gear.

CAUTION

  • The engine is not protected from excessive engine revs caused by shifting down at the wrong time. This can result in a sudden increase in revs beyond the permissible maximum rpm and hence engine damage
  • Never rev up a cold engine when the vehicle is stationary or when driving in individual gears.

For the sake of the environment

Do not drive at unnecessarily high engine speeds. Shifting up sooner helps save fuel, reduces engine noise and protects the environment.

New tyres

New tyres have to be “run in” since they do not offer optimal grip at first. Drive especially carefully for the first 500 km or so.

New brake pads

New brake pads initially do not provide optimal braking performance. They first need to be “run in”. Drive especially carefully for the first 200 km or so.

    Automatic transmission

    Economical driving and respect the environment
