/ 2019 Mahindra emax 22s oil #1
Hello, I recently purchased a 2019 Mahindra emax 22s with 55 hours on it. It seems that 50 hours is when it's recommended to do the first servicing. so after parking it and checking it out some more, I pulled the dipstick to check the oil color. The oil seems to have a dark grey metallic sheen to it. The sheen was not overly metallic like say on a painted car. Nor was it light grey and milky as to suggest water or coolant in the oil. It doesn't smoke white and the only black smoke is for a second after starting it and then it goes away. Now as I write this I have not felt the oil to feel for any grittiness. After seeing it i figured it might just be from break-in on a new engine and I would just change the oil. However, since we have this awesome forum I figured I would pose the question. I've never owned a new car or not have I ever done the first oil change on a new car so I'm not sure what the oil looks like for it's very first change. My question to those who know more than I do on this, does this sound normal? Assuming the oil doesn't feel overly gritty, is it safe to assume this is just a new engine thing and subsequent oil changes will look more like regular oil does as the hours go up? Thank you for the help.
