Engine Oil Level

Hi,

Just checked my 159 2.2JTS engine oil level and noticed that the oil level is above the max indicator of the dip stick. Is this an issue I need to be concerned with? If so, how can I remove the access oil (I am not very mechanically inclined, so going under the car to remove oil from some valve may be out of the question)

Cheers

Re: Engine Oil Level

how far above? Anywhere up to maybe 5mm is highly unlikely to cause a concern, any higher then get suckin

About 5mm. What sort of damage can I expect as I have been running at this oil level for the last 3000km I should have been more diligent in checking the oil level
