  • Help - think I over filled the oil.

    Couple off nights back oil light came on whilst driving, pulled over checked the dip stick - in poor light dip stick looked empty - put a litre of Mobile 0 40 in.

    Checked it again this morning and the dip stick is showing level max.

    Car seems to be running smooth no wiffs of burning oil.

    Have I foobarred the CAT ? - if so how much will it cost.

    Cheers,

    OS.

      You should be OK, so long as its not way over, it could cause contamination of the Cat but I think you would be unlucky. Overfilling can also blow oil seals.

      If your going to add some oil its always best to fill a 3rd of a litre at a time then recheck the level after a few mins, I hope you didn't add a litre in one go?

          from the bottom of the dipstick to max is approx 1 litre of oil so you should be fine !
