BMW crank cases has a small release valve, so that if you overfill with engine oil, it will slowly leak out to prevent damage to your engine.Miguel 3 said:Hey MarkGreer thanks for the reply! I really did not want to over fill because i know the problems that can cause.
Turn off your caps lock please. :banghead:Miguel 3 said:HACK I USED AN OIL EXTRACTOR AND IT MUST HAVE TAKEN OUT MOST OF THE OIL BECAUSE I ADDED EXACTLY 7 QUARTS. AND IF I AM READING THE STICK CORRECT ITS PERFECT, I MEASURED IT BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE. THE NEXT TIME I WILL MEASURE HOW MUCH I TAKE OUT. THE CONTAINER FOR THE EXTRACTOR IS ONLY 5 QUARTS SO REALLY DID NOT PAY ATTN TO HOW MUCH CAME OUT. ANY WAY AS USUAL YOUR INFO IS GREAT, YOUR DOING A GREAT JOB WITH THIS SITE. THANKS
