Too much Oil?

Well I just changed my oil and started it for a few min, let it sit for 5 min and checked the oil... it is just over the cross-hatched area of the dipstick. I know not to overfill but would this little amount ever do anything? I am guessing no but I figured I would ask.

I usually check my oil in the morning before its started for the first time that day. It usually is slightly above the cross hatch area, when I check it after its been run and let sit 10 -15 minutes ,it will read a little low. I put in the exact amount plus a new filter so I know that the amount is correct. If your over after its been run , you have too much oil . I have a Fumoto drain valve on my pan so I can start and stop the oil drain ,if its over filled. It may not be a big deal to be a little over but I'll leave that comment up to other org. members

let it run for a little bit so the temp gets up. then shut it down and check it. if you check it cold it will show over full. best reading is after it has been run for a bit.

Not sure if it hurts anything but I have run mine a little over and it seems to be just fine.

it will just consume the extra oil, probably through the cdr.

What I figured would happen, just consume the oil that it doesn't need.. What's CDR stand for?

I might go under it again today and drain a little out... Man I have to get one of the drain valves, any places cheaper then others to get the Fumoto valves? For some reason I worry about someone seeing the valve and opening it in a parking lot or something but that sounds stupid to worry about that unless used oil starts being worth cash like catalytic converters ha.

maybe its just an idi term, crankcase decompression regulator, its the thing on your driver side valve cover. it allows the blowby gases to escape the crankcase, the tube leads back to the intake to be reburned. some oil mist escapes, thats why your turbo, intercooler tubes and intercooler get oily. which is why some do a road draft tube.

I was thinking crank case vent. After work i'll drive it home (25min ride) so it will me warm and let it sit for 10min and check. That sounds like a good reading! Thanks.
