Hi,
Using disproportionate gears would increase stress on the gears and could result in faster wearout.Nothing will happen to Engine.As you can use the car comfortably, no much wear out would have resulted for limited period usage mentioned. However please follow guidelines given by mechanic to avoid damages to gear teeth.
