It depended very much on the individual engine. Most would be completely unaffected by 200mlLM10 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 25, 2018 10:33 pmHey folks. Since I've read different stuff on how bad it would be to put more than max amount of oil in an engine and since I know there are a bunch of clever people with technical knowledge here, I wanted to ask.
For example, if the oil level is at the max mark on the dipstick when 4 l of oil is in it, what can the causes of, let's say, 200 ml more oil than that be? Are there any tolerances above the max amount the manufacturers still put? The extent of how much more oil would you consider as too much and definitely harmful and would you be more afraid of destroying the engine or the catalyser?
Just changing the oil filter should cover it. If freshly changed, take it off and stand it in a tray to drain. as long as the rubber is ok reuse.
