Please guide me. I went for a regular check up of my new Celerio gasoline driven car. The Maruti Workshop mechanic made a mistake. He left the dipstick out after he checked my oil. I figured it out after 200km driving. I did not get the engine washed after I drove it. Afterword, I went the mechanic. They said it would be ok. I asked him to change the filter as a precaution.
Could this have damaged my engine in the long run?
The mechanics have assured me that there is currently no damage.
Any suggestions or guidance is appreciated.
