If gas gets into the oil pan and the car is driven for about fifty miles, will this damage the rings and bearing on the bottom end?
Roughly a quart of gas got in the oil pan. Will this damage engine? Car was
driven approx. 50 miles.
you might get away with it, how did it get in there?
Test drove a car that i was looking to purchase. Oil dipstick read overfilled, pointed this out to the dealer. He took car to his mechanic. Owner said his mechanic told him a hole in an EGR line caused the motor to run rich and the fuel got past the rings.
Yes. You probably have a bad fuel injector. The gas will wash the oil off the rings and damage the engine. Don't drive it until it is fixed.
