    Lampas siya during cold dahil you check the engine when warm. When it's warm and you check the engine, the oil is still in the engine upper components. But this is good dahil this is what you want, maximize the amount during operation.

    Could damage gaskets. Damaged head gasket could get oil into coolant and vice versa.

    If oil level reaches crankshaft it will be whipped into a foam which won't lubricate well. Exacerbated by driving fast through corners, centrifugal forces will shift the oil.

    But apparently there's a bit of safety margin for oil overfill...

    Kung hindi naman grossly overfilled, don't lose sleep over it. Hindi ka naman pagsasakluban ng langit at lupa.

    How much did you overfill ba?

    2mm is nothing, but you might still want to drain off the excess, or suck it out of the dipstick tube.

    i think 0.25 liter ata kasi 3.75 sa manual eh 1 gallon=approx 4 liters yun.

    Beg to disagree--DO NOT remove any oil kapag ganyan. Tamang tama lang sukat mo.

    Agree din ako. I was just answering Otep's question on how much ang sobra.
