Oil: How much is too much


Recommended Posts

I just topped up my engine oil on an ‘02 3.6 - I may have over done it 😅 No, I didn’t do 0.5 at a time. I know…

It’s just above the high dot on the dip stick (see photo) on a warm engine. Do I need to drain some or is this going to be ok?

I'd drain a little... I understand that too much oil in these engines is as problematic as too little.  Best to get it right on the dipstick and then reset/calibrate the level in the computer.

Alright, she’s drained. It was almost a litre over. I’m not sure how I got it that wrong, but all sorted now. Thanks Fishcop 👍🏼
