Hey guys,

To begin, I'm not the most car savvy and am kind of a noob but I'm trying. I have a 2001 530iA. For the sake of convenience I had my oil changed at a shop this morning. Driving it back to work was (10 min away) was fine. I parked it and let it sit while I finished my shift. Heading home from base I tried passing a car, pulled over into the left lane and put my foot down and the car didn't move, just kinda real slowly accelerated, sputtering the whole time. When I got home, I checked the oil and there is too much. This wasn't going on at all before the change, can too much oil cause the engine to misfire? Also, I have no error lights or anything. The dash is clean. Any ideas? Do I just need to drain it a bit until the correct amount of oil is in? Or what?

Take it back to the shop. They can suck the excess out through the dipstick tube. Never heard of an overfill causing a misfire.

Have them read any stored codes. Report back.
