Problems with oil level in a 156 2.0 TS
I have recently acquired a 156 2.0 TS (W-plate). I checked the oil level and found it to be below the minimum level. I have read that the difference between the min and max markers on the dipstick is one litre, so I added one litre of oil to the engine. Now the dipstick says there is way too much oil in there, the mark being way above the max-line and even onto the coil of the dipstick itself.
Does anyone know why or how this could have happened?
And if the oil level really is that high, am I going to do serious damage to the engine?
Thanks in advance...
