Too Much Engine Oil Problems?

Recommended Posts

I've just checked my engine oil after getting an oil change last week, and there was far too much oil. It's about 2 inches above the maximum marker so I'm going to write to the garage and complain.

 

But can anyone tell me the problems having too much oil would have? I'm trying to add creditability to my complaint.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Well I've been driving it like that for 2 weeks now, guess if anything was going to die it would have by now?

 

I keep hearing about seals being blown and the engine getting damaged.

 

I always pop a little extra oil in when servicing engines.

 

Probably be fine .. Ive never seen an engine go because of it .. Just seals.
