Helpppp!!

I put too much oil in my car!
Now its way over the full mark.

Is there any alternative to the drain plug?

Suck it out of the dipstick area? Or maybe a quart or so from the oil filter area?

Just do it from the plug. You will get some on your hand though but it washes off. ;o))

Yep I just did it, I took out the bolt and held it in kind of a little tilted so the oil could come out little by little. Thanks anyways.

Maybe not the best way to do it... I would say the easiest way would be to use a Mityvac to suck some up.

Glad you got it down to the right level though!
