I tried an DIY oilchange on my 159 2.4 jtdm as i have done this a load of times on other cars ... anyhows ... it did not went as planned
when i was changing the oilfilter, the bottom part of the plastic filter housing with a small shim ring broke of (not into the engine). As i needed the car i tried to fit the filter anyhow.
When i turned the engine on it sounded like something was ratteling in the engine, not a metallic sound but my guess was that the oil filter was being pushed around because of the lacking support by the filter housing, so i turned it of again in a hurry. unscrewed the filter housing and the filter seemed fine. Found a replacement filterhouse on ebay which is now inbound.
Now i just wanted to check if every thing was OK, so i pluged in the key, and to my suprise it now states low oil level the stick confirmes this ... (just after the oil change a couple of hours earlier it stated full)
There is not a single drop under the engine so it is in the engine somewhere ... but where ? in any engine i know the oil would slowly return to the swamp when turning off the engine ...
i need some advice on how to proceed, where is the oil now ? should i do a complete oilchange again when the new filterhousing arrives?
