    Added too much oil

    Can too much oil damage your engine?

    If so, why?

    Yes, definitely!

    It can cause the oil to aerate/foam and that can lead to major lubrication problems. Also, too much oil can get sucked into the PCV system and lead to expensive emissions-related problems, including a toasted catalytic converter.

    It bees bad news!

    Get that excess oil outta there, pronto!
