    Engine break in protocol after warranty engine rebuild?

    Long story short #4 rod bearing spun and had new short block installed and oil pump from dealer. My first question on the subject, is there a "safe" or "correct" way to break in the engine? Any difference from new car break in vs rebuild? Thanks

    This is something that your dealership should have told you before you left the floor with your new short block.... I would consult your dealership. But following the breakin guidlines from the manual should suffice.
