I think I just filled up too much oil... I changed the oil with Castrol syntec 5w30 and added 6 qts...I checked the dipstick and its just a tiny bit over the 2nd marker...about 3/16 of an inch over. What's the correct oil amount to add to a 328i?
I used castrol syntec 5w30 full synthetic oil, and OEM bmw oil filter from dealer. I should've just bought BMW's synthetic, since this castrol cost me $5 a qt where the BMW's just $4.
Anyway, how can I minimize any potential damage, I mean I didn't overfill that much, how much am I supposed to fill anyways? I followed the instructions for oil change for the M3 and the guy used 7 liters, lol didn't take into account that my car had a smaller engine . I bought 8 qts and only used 6, and still overfilled!
Should I keep revs down for a while until the oil level drops back down? How much potential damage will be done? (probably much less than previous owner did, he used crap FRAM oil/air filters)
also, am I right about the 2 markers the manual is referring to on the oil dipstick? check the picture...
