Alfa 147 1.6 - Oil Level Question

I have failed to check the level of the engine oil for a month. Today I found that the oil level was on the wrong side of the minimum mark. I am inexcusable for letting this happen and I worry if that has caused a damage in the engine. And if so, what will be the signs of such a possible damage?

Re: Alfa 147 1.6 - Oil Level Question

Unfortunately you will never know if any damage has been done unless some mechanical failure happens, and even then you won`t know if this was the real cause or not as that failure could be in a week or 5 years time.

Let this be a lesson to you to always check your oil but don`t let it worry you unnecessarily. What you can`t control, don't worry about, but don`t do it again!

As Chris says,check it weekly,especially if you`re doing a lot of miles.
