I guess I should've expected nothing less from a dealer. I was stupid, lazy (and cheap)-- I decided to have the dealer do my 15k oil service so that I could
1. Save the money on oil and filter
2. Get the dealer stamp in my service book
3. Get a replacement cabin microfilter and wiper blades
4. Have someone else do the work (although admittedly its very easy).
I drove home (about 10 miles), and checked the oil. Sure enough it was way above the top mark on the dipstick-- in fact it was all the way to the upper part of the plastic piece of the dipstick!
My Oil extractor came to the rescue-- I siphoned off a little over a quart of oil. Now the dipstick shows the oil reading just at the top of the little rectangle ( you know what i mean).
Given the amount of cars they see, the training they have, etc, why can't dealer mechanics even do an oil change correctly?! Its really amazing how bad a lot these guys are. That's the last time for me-- no more "free maintenace". More like "We'll do everything we can to destroy your car, for free".
I know its been asked, but I have to ask the obligatory, OCD "Do you think that this damaged my engine?".
Has anyone had a dealer change the oil and NOT overfill the crankcase?
