I've neglected to check my oil level a few times and when I got around to checking it, the stick was almost completely dry! It surprised me a bit cuz I didn't expect the car to consume so much oil. It took about 3/4 to a full quart to get it back to the full mark.
I use Mobil 1 5W30 full synthetic and have around 30K on the odometer for a 03WRX. Question is, what are the chances of permanent engine damage by having such low oil levels. I usually drive pretty hard. What are some of the symptoms of engine damage related to this issue?
My car runs fine.. but it doesnt seem to be as fast as it use to be.. dunno if I've just gotten use to it?
