Sure it is ok happened to a friend of mine few months back he done an oil change what ever happened he must not have filled it up right and I just said before we went on a spin we check your oil cause we were going onto some mad mountain roads so was going to be driving on a bit, checked the oil in his and was about 4mm up the dipstick bearly on Low Mark so luckily he had oil in the car but strangely very odd his engine takes 4litres of oil to Full Mark and it only took 1 Litre to fill it up and engine was stopped a good 10-15mins to check the oil level very odd done a Compression test, Leakdown test, Sniff test and changed to an uprated oil pump and the pump that was in it was perfect to no marks on it at all from it running the low oil checked it all only a month ago and all is perfect in her it might have been a different story if I didnt check the oil in it before we went for that fast spin he could well have the engine seized now cause them roads are just

Re: close call!!

i'am with dave on this one, the marks on the dipstick are there as a rough guidance,and it only takes 30 seconds a week to check . If the oil pressure light had come on whilst he was driving it could have ended in tears,but thankfully all is ok.

The very 1st thing my dad taught me about cars when i was 9,was you check your oil every week. lol

Re: close call!!

Im saying nowt, many moons ago(when ukDave had a neck) we used to put oil in when it was rattling lol
One evening we had a SPIRITED drive around a popular town and had the music on that loud we didnt know it was out of oil until we pulled up and turned it down and all we got was chatter chatter rattle rattle chatter chatter lol
Fords used to have a built in warning system many years before multi information displays, when u went round a corner the oil pressure light would flicker then you knew you were low oil lol
And as bad as all this sounds I wasnt that bad at servicing ok not as OCD as now but it was looked after, didnt need many oil changes as id did that itself lol.
