Welcome to the forum.
I pick up mine at 15kms & now have 800kms on it. That smell might be some shipping grease on exhaust. Mine had that, as they got it on a Friday & I took it home on the Sunday & it wasn't even unwrapped yet! As for driving, I was told no long trips at the same speed for like 1-2 hours. Keep changing up the speed. As for Oil Changes, I was told around 4000kms or if oil life monitor comes on sooner. Normal oil changes are at 10000kms according to dealer.
What kind of car did you get? Congratualtions on getting a Jeep as well! I don't know about engine break in for your car, but the Jeep clearly states in the manual what you should do. This is from the 2009 manual:
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the engine in
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km).
After the initial 60 miles (100 km), speeds up to 50 or
55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the
limits of local traffic laws, contributes to a good break-in.
Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be detrimental
and should be avoided.
The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a
high-quality energy conserving type lubricant. Oil
changes should be consistent with anticipated climate
conditions under which vehicle operations will occur.
The recommended viscosity and quality grades are
shown in “Engine Oil”, under “Maintenance Procedures”
in section 7 of this manual. NON-DETERGENT OR
STRAIGHT MINERAL OILS MUST NEVER BE USED.
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few
thousand miles (kilometers) of operation. This should be
considered a normal part of the break-in and not interpreted
as an indication of difficulty.
72 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE
"I've got two things in this world, my balls and my word and I don't break them for no one."
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
Congrats on your new Jeep. There are two things you need to remember. 1. You are now a part of the Jeep Wrangler family and are required to wave at all Wranglers that you encounter along your way and 2. There are cars, trucks, vans, and suvs, but a Jeep is in a class of it's own. Enjoy your new toy. Now go play in the dirt.
