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.

SOURCE: why do they tell you not to overfill gas tank

The actual reason is maximize your fuel mileage.
The engineering is as follows:
There are times when the fuel injectors shut off when you are driving, like going down a long hill. There is no need for the injectors to "work", as you are coasting without giving it any gas. But, the engine will stall out with no injector action. So, how does Toyota keep the engine running? From the gasoline FUMES in the fuel tank. There is a tube on top of the fuel tank whch siphons the fuel vapours...The vapours then are stored in something called a charcaol canister, in which the "charcoal" absorbs the fumes from the tank, and, when coasting, the injectors stop injecting, and the stored fumes are admitted into the intake manifold thru a valve controlled by the Electronic Control Unit, or ECU. The fumes are used by the engine, thusly maximizing your mileage, other than losing them by letting them escape out from under the fuel cap. Now, to answer your question: If the vehicle is "overfilled", there is no place for the fumes, other than in the top of the filler neck. And the siphon tube is on top of the tank. The ECU sees the overfill condition as a "blockage" in the fuel fume vent line (only fumes should be in this tube), and said "blockage" will transmit this to the ECU, thru a sensor, & turn on your check engine light. The overfill actually "lies" to the ECU, even though there is nothing wrong. Best thing to do: When filling the tank, stop after the handle clicks off.
I hope that I have explained this to your liking.

SOURCE: Shaking with engine light and VSC Off lights turned on

If just found this on another forum:

A few days ago I started the Cruiser and had 4 indicators stay lit.
They were the CHECK ENGINE...SLIP INDICATOR..VSC TRAC..VSC OFF.
Didnt noticed any change in driving and 4-wheel drive is still working.
I removed the negative cable from the battery and the same indicator lights have NOT come back. Everything is back to normal as far as warning lights go. Should I take it in to the service center and have it checked.
Or should I wait to take it in, if it does it again?

What happens when you overfill engine with oil


Depends upon how much you overfill it. Normally an extra half-quart is no big deal. You'll see it show overfull on the dipstick after you run the engine and then recheck it, but no harm done. Add more than a quart extra and you can get what is known as foaming. The oil in the pan will be churned up by the crank shaft and become aerated. This can reduce oil pressure, lubrication quality, and flow rate. Engine damage can result from this.

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

2005 chevy aveo was overfilled with oil at the last change. It was estimated to be around 1 1/2 to 2 quarts when then the car had a major issue 4 days after the oil change. According to my mom (who was...


too much oil can cause the crankshaft or camshaft to drag which can cause the timing belt to slip.
If you are lucky replace the timing belt and start it up. It will run badly and smoke a bit but will clear, hopefully nothing collided when the belt slipped.
The timing belt is something that any competent home mechanic can change, it just takes time.
Sorry to hear about another rip off dealer.

How much oil


Dpends on the engine for EXACT quantity but, all the engines will right around 5 quarts. If you overfill by a 1/4 - 1/2 a quart you are still ok. These engines (either 4, 6, or the 8 cylinders) are going to about the same size sump/oil pan. Any more than that and you could cause issues. So, dump 5 quarts and close the hood, good to go!

Ticking motor


A ticking noise from the engine may be caused by low motor oil level in the engine. You can check the oil yourself or have an oil change shop such as Jiffy Lube look at it for you. If you check it, check with the engine off. If it is low (see owners manual for how to read the dipstick) then add 1/2 quart at a time until a 'full' reading is obtained. It is very important not to overfill the engine oil as this can cause damage to the engine.

Good Luck,
