drained oil started car like a fool car shut off after about 45 seconds
i drained my oil and like an idiot i started it to get it off the ramps, it shut off after about 45 seconds to a minute. i was wondering if any serious damage was done. i was able to start it up again afterwards with no weird sounds being made.i also heard that newer cars were built with low pressure oil shut down mechanisms, not sure if thats true or its just the engine stalling. i have a 09 lancer gts 2.4 L
You got lucky but I think it will be fine.
45 seconds at idle I'm with tuff on this one especially if you were running synthetic or blend, they tend to hank on a little more than conventional oil.
You're ok, as mentioned above. Yes it's true, the computer will shut down the engine if it detects low oil pressure or low oil level on some newer vehicles. HTH. -Jim
I would be checking the bearings if I were you I cant see running for any length of time not damaging the bearings and thee last thing you want is metal shavings in your oil system as that will cause a spun bearing
