I have a 2001 S60 2.4T with 72000 miles.<p>Today, I had an oil change and after letting the car sit for a while I checked the dip stick. I noticed the oil was over the line by about 1/8 of an inch, maybe a little more. Do I need to have some of the oil drained to to the dip stick line?<p>Thanks.

I'm not sure, but it wouldn't hurt to drain it to the max level or a bit below it. Did you try asking the guys in the S60 forum, in case your engine is different?

Re: How much oil is too much oil? (soldonvolvo)

usually plus or minus one liter is ok for most cars.<p>If you are racing and want to keep your engine a long time we add an extra half liter to keep it oiled in the corners . If you want it to go faster in the straights we keep it half a liter low away from the crank shaft.<p>Or if you have the money dry sump system solves both problems. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">
