Ok, I'll start by saying I'm not new to cars or maintainance, just diesels. I was lulled into complacencey by not owning a vehicle since '94 that didn't have a low oil light or didn't leak constantly. It was due to this that I let my truck get about a gallon
low on oil and thus wouldn't start. I really never thought that a 2000 Ford would not have an oil light!!!
So my question is whether or not my engine is hurt. There is no knocking or any unusual sounds but this still has me worried. Did the engineers who designed this make it so that the truck just wouldn't run if the oil was too low (fuel pump won't work)?
And before you say it, realize I'm already saying it to myself. I have a 95 Mustang GT we bought new and is still running like a champ at 194,000 miles and my race car goes 12's with the origional short block so I do take care of my stuff. I just got complacent.
Any knowlege you guys could share would really ease my mind.
