Big mistake accidently turned on the car after with no oil in it for about 2min, will this do any damage to my car... actually i was doing an oil change i put the oil in but forgot to put the oil pan bolt back.. so all the oil just leaked out while the car was on...
how much damage could this have done if it was only on for a couple minutes?How bad is it to have no oil in engine for 2min?
You should be OK. anytime you run something without oil, there is more wear and tear. The longer you run it the more wear occurs. Good thing you didn't drive it for 2 minutes because there is a lot more tension and therefore a lot more wear.
Bottom line... you did do some minor wear, but I would not worry about it. I would rather have my car sitting and idling for 2 minutes without oil than drive down the highway with only 2 or 3 quarts of oil.
To put things in perspective, there is already oil in between the piston rings. Those take about 5 minutes to leak out. That is where the most wear and tear is.How bad is it to have no oil in engine for 2min?
I read an article on this, one of the magazines tested an oil additive claim that after treatment, a car engine could be run even without oil. In the tests engines seized in 10-13 seconds without oil. The fact that your car still runs must mean you had some oil left in the pan while the car was running.How bad is it to have no oil in engine for 2min?
more than likely you lucked out since some oil would have remained in the engine. if the car seems to run fine, no knocking or misses, you probably didnt do any damage. if the car had run longer you would have run into some problems.How bad is it to have no oil in engine for 2min?
Your lucky you didn't drive down the road!
This shouldn't be a real bad thing.

If it still runs you are OK but I wouldn't recommend doing that again!How bad is it to have no oil in engine for 2min?
