Re: over filling the oil on a TS
If you don't fancy pulling the sump plug to drain a bit of oil you could try syphoning a bit out instead.
Drop a thin length of silicone tubing down the dipstick tube, get sucking (get gf to do it if your lungs aren't up to it....) and syphon out the amount of the overfill. It's a two minute job and will put your mind at rest. Obviously check levels carefully afterwards.
If the oil is warm it will be much easier to syphon (not hot though, it could melt the tube and/or burn the gf's gob). Make sure the tube is long enough to get the free end right down into a container at floor level. Don't try this with the engine running !
