Just had engine oil changed and told tech. that it gets 5.7 l. no more, and that last time it was changed(different garage) it was over the hatched area on dipstick by a 1/4 ".He said won't happen here and measured out oil checking carefully. I just checked after a week and it is over dipstick hatch marks also at least same amount. Engine is 4.7L on 2005 wk. What is the correct level? Oil pan is not dented or anything. Every thing seems to work and run fine, sounds good. have only had this wk for a few months with 110000 Kl or about 66000 miles. Doesn't use any oil, all other fluids are stable and full. I have read a number of opinions on this situation of maybe overfill and am a little nervous.:confused::confused::confused:Comments please.
