Have I damaged my engine by lugging it?

Earlier today I was in 3rd and did not realise I was turning over around 800 revs and I went to apply the throttle (gently not floor it) and it made a weird sound and then I realised I was in the wrong gear and was lugging the engine,

Earlier today I was in 3rd and did not realise I was turning over around 800 revs and I went to apply the throttle (gently not floor it) and it made a weird sound and then I realised I was in the wrong gear and was lugging the engine,

I did this around 6 times the same day (as I was trying to figure out what the noise was) before I realised what the noise was,

Its a 1.4 turbo,

I know lugging doesn t do the car any good but I want to make sure i didn t damage the car,

I don t intend to do it again,

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks

Tom:
I doubt you have damaged the engine as it seems you did not abuse it for long. However if you keep repeating the action it will have an effect by damaging main bearings. You should be alert to rpm and load constantly and change down earlier rather than later. A 1.4 will not take abuse like a V8 might.
thebax2006:
If you did it 6 times in one day you have bad driving habits and will do it again. That will carbon up the motor. Shift out of first gear when you get to around 2,500 rpm and upshift above 2,500 rpm through the other gears for normal driving. I shift at 3,500 to 4,000 rpm all the time. When merging on the expressway you should shift at over 4,500 rpm. Look at the tachometer. I'll bet red line is over 6,800 rpm.
Erik:
Just drive it. If you've caused permanent damage, you'll know soon enough.

Your best help is for you to pay attention to what you're doing and practice better habits.
