may be a dumb question, but looking for serious mechanics response. Is it bad to have too much oil in your car, my oil level is just a little above the max mark when i checked other day, service station said it took 6.5 quarts. Is there any long term damage that can occur because of this, or how bad is it?

I'm no "serious mechanic" but I do my own oil changes if that makes you feel any better, and I think you are fine.

It can cause problems if you put too much oil in the engine but you are no where near that level. To be "a little above the max mark" isn't a big deal.
