Too much oil?

If the oil on the dipstick is 1/4 inch above the high mark, will it cause the motor not too start?

Re: Too much oil?

Unless it's over-full due to something diluting it, such as fuel. If it's fuel diluted, it may not build enough pressure to start.

Re: Too much oil?

If it starts smoking blue then you have too much Seriously, 1/2 is fine, but dont go fill it that high on purpose everytime, if your that worried about it drain 2qts out.
