What happens if you overfill oil?

Short story, the drain plug on the oil pan is leaking. I can't check the oil level using the dip stick because I put a front strut in. I've been adding small amounts of oil. I've got the new parts and will be getting them installed this week, but I worry. Yeah,

If you get too much in the oil will foam which reduces its lubricating properties. The amount its leaking probably isn't a lot. You're probably fine but get those parts soon! Everyone should be able to check their oil.

Can't/won't argue with someone if they're right......unless you're married to them.

Sam, what Deane said.
Also, you have to check your oil level on a regular basis, If you can't modify that strut so you can, I would get rid of that strut.

Sam, you should be able to check it.
It's awkward, but doable.
You just need a light to shine in that abyss so you can see the hole.

I heard if you spit on it, it helps get it in the hole if its a tight fit what was the question again.

LOL, you guys, old and not so are very funny. Last night on my way to Brantford, driving along the Grand R. I has to swerve sharply. My passenger said, " Sit, you almost ended up in the water". To which I replied .. I'm calling the G "BP" from now on.
That dark abyss is really, really dark, but I figured out a solution. I now carry a box of plastic straws with a split in it. As I pull out the stick I slide the straw over it (extra large size) and into the opening. I leave it there while I check the level and then slide it back into the abyss.
Wayne, I love the strut and will keep it.
BTW Boyz. I had the pan replaced today and problem solved. Thanks for all you advice and laughs.

so to answer the question, If you do put too much oil, it must be an excessive amount, it will build to much pressure and can blow the seals. I highly advise to modify the srtut tower bar so you can constantly check your oil level. Especially if you have a Rev-Up motor, as they burn alot!

Thanks Hotdawwgman. It's not the Rev-Up and I'll heed your advice and check regularly. Good practice.

^^^^By the sounds of it, I think it was just Sam's aging eyesight combined with poor design that was the problem finding the dipstick hole.
I must admit, I always had to use a flashlight to check the oil in my 1st gen G35. It has to be the worst design ever.
