You will need to locate the oil drain plug. Take the plug out and let all of the oil drain out then replace the oil drain plug and refill the with the proper amount of oil minus the capacity of the oil filter(normaly 1/4 ro 1/2 qt). You could try to put the plug in after a little has drained out if you dont mind getting messy but i would be sure and buy enough oil to compleatly refill the car just incase you dont get it back in soon enough.

It can cause seals to leak if you overfilled it. Drain the excess fluid out immediately, before you ever start the engine.

you can but it would be easier to drain it from the bottom

If you know that you have overfilled with oil, then before you start the engine, drain some out by the drain plug. But, if you did run the engine, depends at what rpm, you just might blow some seals, or force oil out thru some seals. Hopefully no other damage.

If you overfilled the oil then you can drain some out. There are small hand held pumps that would work fine for the purpose. The exact process would depend on what you overfilled and how much. If the overfill is slight it might not matter on some things and be a big problem in some other. You did not say what you overfilled to give a real exact answer.

oil will pour out. that's what the dipstick is for. Check it and if needed, drain some out.

If not discovered in time and run too long, it could cause the seals to fail. Simple remedy - just drain the oil.

The engine oil drain plug is on the bottom rear of the engine oil pan. The transmission does not have a drain plug, you remove the pan to drain.The engine oil drain plug is on the bottom rear of the engine oil pan. The transmission does not have a drain plug, you remove the pan to drain.

Drain it, there should be a bolt in the bottom of your oil pan. Then refill to whatever your owners manual says is safe, if you don't have an owners manual then Google it.DO NOT DRIVE a vehicle with too much oil, you will blow the seals.

Depends on what you mean by too much. If you overfilled it by say 1 pint then more than likely no damage will be done. Simply drain out the excess. If, however you overfilled it by more than that then serious damage can occur. The crankshaft can make contact with the excess oil and whip it into a froth. This froth of oil mixed with air is a poor lubricant and will provide far less protection from wear than 100% oil. Drain out the excess immediately.

If you overfilled your oil on accident do NOT drive the car. Either drain some oil yourself or have the car towed to a mechanic and have them drain some oil for you. If you do drive the car even with the oil overfilled by as little as by quarter quart the oil will foam up and do a LOT of damage including blow seals ruin cylinders ruin valvetrain ruin oil pump ruin pistons ruin rings ruin cylinder head ruin valve guides and more. At that point it would be cheaper to buy a whole new or rebuilt engine then to fix the old one.

Your engine is most likely overfilled with oil. Check your oil and make sure it isn't overfilled. However a little oil coming out the exhaust isn't gonna hurt anything, your just gonna waste a heak of a lot of oil

Drain the crankcase completely empty, and re-fill with the proper amount of oil. You give no information on how long, or if, the engine was driven in this condition, but if it was for very long there is the possiblity that the oil seals may have been 'blown.' There is no way of telling this until you have drained and re-filled the engine and operated the vehicle for awhile.

You drain coolant from the radiator. but according to the book ther are two plugs on the engine block that need to drain the coolant from.

Replace pinion seal, axle seals or cover gasket unless it is overfilled then drain excess fluid and. Check for proper level

User Avatar

You need to remove the engine oil drain plug. It is on the bottom rear of the engine.

User Avatar

More than likely no damage was done but it is possible. If you overfill an engine the excess oil can make contact with the crankshaft. This will cause the oil to be saturated with air. This air mixed with the oil is a poor lubricant and will cause engine wear. Park the vehicle on a level surface, check the oil level (engine cold) and drain out the excess oil immediately.

Open the drain valve on the side of the engine block.
