Not good! Overfilling the oil sump can cause foaming and loss of oil pressure. Open the drain plug and drain out however much you need to for it to be at full mark. Kind of messy; have rags handy.

Overfill of oil on g35 infinity

what are you asking what to do if the oil is overfilled. if so it its a little over the full mark like a 1/32 or 1/16" its okay you need not do anything but if more you should have the oil drained down to the full mark. you may have to add oil to top it up afterwards.

Oil overfilling

It should be fine, but adjust the level as soon as you can, using a pump around the inspection stick or just take it to the mech. Overfilling might cause the crankshaft to come in contact with the oil, mixing it with air like a big blender. This can cause the oil pump to not be able to pump the air-mixed oil, causing low oil pressure and problems related to this. As long as you did not get a low oil pressure warning it should be fine, but get it sorted out. Good luck :)

Oil overfill

Not for 1/2 quart
If it is up on the dip stick more than 1/8" over full
I would loosen the drain plug & let some out
1" above full is at least a quart or more & yes
let some out

I change oil in my nissan titan v8 and after the engine started smokeing what do we do to stop the smoke.

if the smoke is coming from the engine bay, check for spilt oil or an oil leak, especially on the exhaust. clean/fix this and the smoke should stop.

if it is coming from the exhaust, check you have used the correct grade of oil (too thin oil may bypass oil seals slightly) and you have not overfilled the engine and this can cause internal pressure, causing oil to bypass the seals, or even blow oil seals completely. overfilling will also damage the catalytic converter.

I need to put motor oil in my car and dont know how to so it cause my eletric to stop and i also need my breaks fix

First problem: adding motor oil. Open the hood of the car, there is usually a lever or handle with a picture of the hood on it, pull that to open hood. Find OIL FILLER CAP and remove. Find the Oil Dipstick and check oil level FIRST! Do not overfill engine oil. Open container of oil and pour in to oil fill hole. The dipstick will have marks on it to let you know where the FULL LEVEL is, do not overfill. Electric should return once engine has sufficient oil in it. For brake problems, please bring your car to the nearest brake shop.
Hope this helps.

Blowing oil and smoke

When overfilled, how long before the level was drained back to normal, or was it? The problem with overfilling, is that the oil will 'foam' and not lubricate properly. This can result in serious engine damage. So, make sure it's at the proper level now, if it is, I believe the engine was damaged due to lack of proper lubrication. Wish I had better news. Good luck.

Mercedes SLK230 overfilling oil warning

5.6 liters here in the UK, could be a faulty sensor but try the oil first, easy enough to drain, jack up the rear passenger side so it gets all the oil out when draining.

I have a 2004 Toyata Highlander that occasionally gets an oil overfill from the dealership. On the dipstick (after the car has been running) marks halfway between the full mark and the double cutouts...

Check the oil with the engine warm & off. An accidental overfill of 1/2 quart will not hurt the engine. BUT, 2-3 quarts overfull will result in issues, and I would recommend draining that overfill out. But, 1/2 quart is really nothing to worry about.
