Left off oil cap for 2 days 50miles. No oil splatter on engine that I can see, I had a bad oil smell in car until I put cap back on. Now the smell is gone, should I be worried about damaging anything in the engine? Oil life is at 68pct, should I check dip stick?
My car has 77000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
