Bonn Brothers Toyota overfilled the oil by 1 quart when they changed the oil. Is this a problem?
Dealer put in 5 quarts (also indicated on receipt) instead of 4 when changing
the oil. Didn't check it until after I got home. When I called, they said it was
not a problem.
Is this extra quart a problem?
I would tell them to remove the excess oil.
Thanks! I am taking the car back to have them remove the extra. I did check the dipstick, but not until the next morning. It was extremely high. After checking the oil, I noticed "5 quarts" was indicated on the receipt. (The car takes 4 quarts.) When I spoke to the dealer they told me it wasn't a problem that they put in an extra quart --- that they often did that. What a no-sense practice and a waste of oil! I am taking it back to have them drain the extra. You would think a dealer would be more efficient.
In some situations if you overfill the crankcase with oil the oil will foam. This can cause loss of oil pressure and engine damage. When the oil foams the oil pump is sucking in air bubbles and not liquid oil. That's what causes the loss of oil pressure. Not good! HTH. - Jim
What engine in this vehicle? Have you noticed any oil consumption between oil changes?
TOYOTA CAMRY 2.4L 4-cyl Engine Code 2AZ-FE ... Engine, with filter.....4 quarts. Have never had to add oil between oil changes. Haven't taken it to the dealer in years. Have changed it myself in the past.
Dealerships are notorious at overfills. My wife's Escape ALWAYS comes back over. It's 4.3 quarts and they put in 5.0. They say " no problem " won't hurt a thing. Now I know they can meter that oil coming out of those huge tanks in the ceiling, but apparently the tech never had that math course on decimals. I note it on the invoice, so far no problems, but it just bugs me they can't get it right.
