I'd hoped to join this forum on slightly better terms than this, but I've got a problem and need my mind put at ease!
I recently bought a 1.8 A3, in good nick all round but I noticed that it was running on empty oil wise - there were no warning lights or anything but oil didn't show at all on the dipstick. I had ~3 litres of oil floating about so I just chucked it all in, not thinking that there could be some oil in there still just not reaching dipstick level. Long story short, I've put about a litre too much in...
I couldn't get the drain plug undone last night because I didn't have a 19mm socket, so I've driven it about 40 miles since with no problems, but heard some horror stories as well as some 'a litre wont matter' stories too. If you lot say it should definitely have some taken out I'll do something with a syringe and a long tube down the dipstick hole, that'll work right?
Thanks, and hello!
