Hi, I see lots of threads about oil overfill. Our car was serviced by Kia dealer in November and we checked oil recently and it was 1-2cm above the max line. We contacted the dealer 11 days ago but yet to receive a response. I am sure when I contact dealer again they will tell me not to worry and it's fine. What is the official stance from Kia on this?

Thanks, Kristian

TBH. If it that far over the line. Then go back to dealer. Had you checked it prior to this?

Mine was serviced 2 weeks ago and I checked level before leaving the garage. Engine still warm. Was spot on.

No not checked it before now. I鈥檝e just been reading about oil level increasing so will keep an eye on it. I checked it cold and I鈥檝e read conflicting info on when to check it so I鈥檒l check it again later, 10 minutes after a run.

Hi Kristian

We give a caution on all models not to overfill the engine oil as it may damage the engine. We'd recommend reporting this by phone to the service manager as soon as possible and do PM us if you need any help.
