news: vishnu offers stage 1. is $2100 for 30-50 wheels HP..

I just need some peace of mind... I discovered that too much oil was added after my most recent change (about an inch over the fill line on the dipstick), which I will correct immediately. I havent driven it very hard or much since I put the oil, thankfully. But im wondering - whats the ill effect of putting too much oil? Any permanent effects? Im grateful for any input.
BTW... it was a jiffylube job.

too much oil... could lead to too much pressure and something's gotta give.

usually, the seals are the first to go...

go open the drain and let some go...

I have seen this a lot, even at the dealerships where they know the capacities. People don't care anymore. I took my pickup back to the Chevy dealer once and told them I wasn't leaving until the oil level was correct. They pretty much acted like I was nuts, but hey. That's how it's gotta be.
