What Happens When you Put too Much Oil in the Vehicle

Have you ever accidentally pour too much oil during engine maintenance? Or maybe you think that more oil will help the engine to operate more smoothly. But there are the consequences of putting too much oil in the car.

Knowing the most common engine oil overfill symptoms will help you prevent damage to your vehicle.

Common signs of engine oil overfill include:

    • Oil leaking from your car

 

    • The smell of burning engine oil

 

    • Smoke from the engine compartment

 

    • Smoke or black exhaust from the tailpipe

 

  • Unusual noises coming from the engine

Changes in oil pressure can lead to:

    • Engine damage such as bent rods in the engine or collapsed valve pipes.

 

    • Catastrophic engine failure where the engine sustains enough damage that it cannot be repaired, but must instead be replaced.

 

    • Excess engine wear from inconsistent oil pressure over time.

 

    • Spark plug fouling, resulting in the need to replace spark plugs more frequently.

 

  • Excess oil deposits in the catalytic converter.

Oil plays a key part in keeping your engine running by lubricating metal parts, such as the pistons, to prevent premature wear.

But most motor oil isn’t designed to last very long and you require to change it on a regular basis. Depending on the vehicle and oil, the time between oil changes could range from 3,000 to 10,000 miles.

Also, learn what happens when you skip oil change.

As you can see adding too much oil to your engine can cause a variety of problems. If you need a convenient and quality oil change, contact our experts right now.
