Default How to know if too much oil?

Hi.

Got a quick question. How do I check if I've put in too much oil?

You should be able to tell via the dipstick.

There is an indicator on the dipstick (min. and max.).

Yeah look at the dipstick. Most of them if it's over the crosshatched part, it's too much

When you pull the dipstick, the oil sometimes will be very foamy. This is an indication that it is over filled. Same goes for auto transmissions.
