(It was Mobil 1 if that makes a difference) Doubtful, although it can't be "good" for the car. The oil loss is most likely through the dipstick tube, when the sump became pressurised. Check the one-way valve on the vac line that comes off the crank case. Short of that, get it fixed ... Should be about 3.50 UKP for a new dipstick tube and only a few pence for a new one-way valve from an aquarium suppliers. Paul Vart tog v”gen v”gen? SAAB : Nothing on earth comes close
