You should remove the excess immediately. This can be done in two ways 1. Remove the drain plug on the pan under the motor. If you do not want to drain all of the oil, attach a vacuum hose from a vacuum cleaner at the oil fill on the valve cover. This creates a vacuum on th engine and prevents all the oil from draining at once. Otherwise 2. Drain all the oil and the refill to recommended level. Over fill of the oil creates air bubbles that prevent proper lubrication of the engine.

You never say make, model or year or engine type of this vehicle, but I can say that fuel pump voltage is module controlled on newer vehicles to save energy and make them quite, so it is entirely possible that is the correct voltage in a static test.

Hi Allison:
If the work was done in a shop I would bring it back and review the problems with the service manager. Usually they are really good about getting it done right, without additional cost.
If this was a "home" job, there could be several different problems.
I'd be jacking it up and checking that there is no slack in the bearing installation. I'd also be looking for any reason that one brake would drag or slide. To exaggerate, if one rotor is greasy, and another one scored, braking will be different and the wheel will jerk.
Here's a fun way to check.
Find a large vacant space like an empty parking lot.
At about 10 kmp, very lightly hold the steering wheel, and sharply hit the brakes. Depending on how much fun you are having you can try it a bit faster. The steering wheel will sharply turn to the side that is getting the most braking force.
It won't take long to track down the problem.
Hope this helps.
Be safe.
Fix them ......... soon.

PCV is located on the valve cover and runs to the intake tube, take the PCV out and shake it to make sure the valve is not stuck. PCVs are usually just replaced if in question because they only cost a few dollars.
