too much oil in X?
Driving into work today i get a check engine light
its an 03 X with 170K on the clock.
i'm a little obsessive with this so I havent had a chance to pull a code.
However 11 days ago? I put in a quart of oil as the oil was down pretty low.
after which when i drove it the day after i smelled some oil but it dissapeared very quickly.
Either way I put about 200 miles on it since then , now the check engine light is on
I figure I'll pull the code at lunch at an auto store, go home drain the oil and put in some new oil , hopefully clear the code by disconnecting the battery. and hopefully that will be that
is this reasonable? or could I have cause a larger issue by putting too much oil? that simply draining and refillling wont cure?
again I donthave the codes pulled yet so I'm just extrapolating here
