I added one EXTRA quart of oil to my car. The prior level of the oil was at the max and I added one additional quart. Do I have to remove it or can I drive it? I have the 2.7L engine. Does not burn any oil and has 65K on the odometer.
I suggest draining off the extra quart of oil. An excessive oil level in any engine submerges the rotating crankshaft in the oil contained in the oil pan.
This may produce two conditions:
1 - The crankshaft may splash excessive oil on to the cylinder walls and cause abnormal oil consumption.
2 - The submerged crankshaft may aerate the motor oil (foam) and reduce its lubricating properties.
I have a BMW and my friends have Mazda, I want to purchase a spoiler. Please let me know the actual price of spoiler which will be black shining.
