: Excess oil in sumpTry locating the drain plug on the sump. Slide underneath the front of the vehicle, look for the rectangular sump, only around 9" square at it's base. The drain plug is on the back edge and is a standard 17mm nut I seem to recall, although have a 19", 15" and 13" handy just in case. I know for certain it's just a standard nut size and does not require a specialist tool. Just loosen the nut and drain off a little oil. If you extract too much just top up with new oil, don't put the sump stuff back in. Probably best to have a new bottle handy, on one occasion I did this and dropped the plug into the oil tray and emptied the entire sump before I found it. I then had to get someone to fetch me some more oil before I could start the engine again!

Many people are under the misconception that if too much oil is put in, the car will just burn off the excess, and whilst this is true, it can cause excessive engine wear in the process - in fact too much oil is often worse than too little. Having said this, don't worry too much if the level is only just over the max mark on the dipstick, as there is a little margin for error built in to the levels. As a rule of thumb I would say that if it's less than 1/4" over the mark there's no need to worry.
