    Default How much oil!!...

    We relied on the garage we bought the car from, to service etc.. before we picked the car up. Seems as Im bored, the car's been stationary for about 90 mins and the engines still slightly warm I thought I'd just check their work:

    New pollen filter?...check!...

    New air filter?...check!...

    New oil filter?....check!....

    Fresh oil?..... HOLY HELL!...Surely the oil should be up to the yellow line now the red one!?!



    Ive had no warning lights but this level of over fill cant be good for the engine can it?

    No its not. Assuming the car was paeked on level ground?

    Too much and lead to the sump pressurising and blowing seals etc.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The other thing that worries me is surely 3 day old oil should be golden brown not black?!? Think Im gunna be better off booking it in for a complete oil change as I dont have the time or equipment to do it my self!

    It would still look clean after 3 days, it should not look black like that imo.
