Question about 2004 Ford Explorer
Remove the drain plug and remove some of the oil. It will be messy, but there's no way around it. Make sure she checks the oil level after draining to get to the right level before driving.

you have to drain the excess oil i would suggest a complete oil change and oil filter. TAke off spark plugs put some wd 40 on each sparkplug hole start the car without any sparkplugs on ir. Reolace sparkplugs with new ones and the car should run again. I would also suggest to check for faulty sparkplug wires and bad air filter. While you are at it go ahead and check fuel filters.

This is symptoms of a blown head gasket.
White smoke is antifreeze burning in the combustion phase.
Oil is also seeping through and being eliminated in the same manner.
Check your tailpipe for oil. Also - check your oil. If it is brown/milky instead of black - you have a head gasket failure or cracked block/cylinder.
Check the coolant quality too. Floating oil or a brown murk - means the same.
