    HELP! I OVERFILLED THE OIL ON MY 993

    Last night I was messing with my new purchase.
    The oil level gauge looked dangerously low as the car warmed up and idling, I also confirmed it by checking the dipstick.
    Added one Qt. and the needle came a little after a minute, I figured I can add one more judging by the way the oil indicator needle moved.
    I dumped one more Qt. and the needle now a hair under the maximum mark.
    The Car runs fine, noting spilled.
    Is there an overflow on the 993, better yet can I take some out?

    Re: HELP! I OVERFILLED THE OIL ON MY 993

    Yes, you can/should drain some. It's hard to drain some without dumping it all (either from oil tank or crankcase). You may be able to take a hand pump and pump some from the filler in the oil tank.

    Here's a site with all the DIY instructions for 993:

    www.p-car.com

    go to DIY area and then How to Change Oil.

    When checking oil in a 993, car must be running (idling), on level ground, and up to temperature (past the white line at 8 O'Clock).

    If it's still a hair under maximum (on the dipstick) under all the above conditions, then don't worry about it. It will burn off a bit with no ill effects. If it's over the top mark under the above conditions, drain or pump some out...

    Thanks for the advice.
    I had the car idle for 15-20 minutes last night and checked the level.
    It is quiet difficult to tell the exact level form the dipstick, but looks like it is hair under the max.
    I guess if I drive it hard it'll just burn it off, the tail pipe

    Where was the oil temp? Idling doesn't always get the motor warm enough for a good reading. Go for a drive and then measure again...

    Right about 8 o'clock as you said.
    I had the car idleing for 15- 20min
    It was totally warmed up and oil pressure was settling 2.5-3bar at 700rpm idle
