Engine Oil high after service– checking?

How often do you check your engine oil?

Do you check it in the correct manner?

Always check your engine oil before and particularly after a service.

There have been numerous cases where owners have reported that the engine oil is over the maximum after it has been for a service. (it's seems to affect all main dealers from all manufacturers). The technicians are not given enough time to do the job properly. So they don't drain all the old oil out.

They dump in a set amount of oil.

They don't have time to check it on the dipstick, and even it was high they haven't got time to drain the oil again.

The net result is oil level is over the maximum level.

Get the dealer to drain the oil if it above maximum.

Or get a large syringe and plastic tube to suck the oil out through the dipstick tube.

Ideally, it should be about 2mm below the maximum mark on the dipstick.
