5+ gallons of oil in my motor

so I am still working on my egr delete and got the oil cooler out and the valley under it is full of oil. How do you get the oil out of therte or is it supposed to drain on its own?
I then drained the oil out of the pan put a 5 gallon bucket under it filled that one up and probably about a gallon in another. what causes them to be over full like that or could it be the guy who owned it before over filled it

There is a screen under the oil cooler. If that is mostly plugged I could see the oil not draining well. This screen should be replaced so reach through the oil and pull it out. As for oil, these take the better part of 15L's of oil. I am not sure what that is in gal. but it sounds like you may have been over filled.

damn key boad, i would figure something out towards where the extra oil is coming from. As simple as the guy before you over filling? I dont know if it would run with an extra 3 gallons of oil in it.

What you are seeing is most likely oil that was trapped in the HPOS

So you're saying you drained 6 gallons of oil out of the pan? Better check to make sure there's not a couple gallons of fuel in that oil.....
