    Car needed an oil change, so I replaced the filter, and put in 10.5 quarts.

    It's only supposed to take 5.5qts..


    For some reason after dumping the first 5qt bottle, none of the oil registered on the dipstick. :whistling:


    The second bottle did the trick.


    Anyone else ever had "this problem" after an oil change? :embarassed:

    :rofl:

    Its like how you buy a 16 oz box of Cheezits but now the 16 oz box is only 13.5 oz at the same price.

    or you forgot the plug

    :supergrin:

    That should be a fun cleanup. Purple Power is your friend. Spray it on, let it sit 10-15 minutes and hose it off. :)

    The large puddle of oil is probably irritating your dog's skin.

    Now you can go twice as long before your next change.

    Then after 6k miles, I can just use the 50/50 mix of new and used oil, and just change it at 1,500 miles. :supergrin:

    j/k

    Good luck cleaning that mess up. Did you happen to notice it running out from under the car before or after you remembered the plug?

    When I was a teenager, I worked for a Ford Quick Lube. I grabbed the trans fluid gun by mistake one day, and put 6 quarts in a truck. I thought for sure I'd get fired over it, but didn't. A week later, one of the other guys dropped a Limo off a lift :supergrin:

    I've been a mechanic for 30 years, changed oil on a thousand vehicles and i have never seen such a thing. If the drain plug is in place, it's GOT to show on t he dipstick (new oil is harder to see).
