I overfilled my oil by quit a bit. I dont have tbe tools to drain the oil and the nearest shop is 2 miles away but its smoking alot can i still make it to the shop without blowing my engine up
If you have overfilled it that much then no you cant drive it. Remove the oil filter and drain it, put it back on start the engine just long enough to bring up the oil pressure take it off and drain it again, keep doing this until you get the level down to normal. Now it will smoke for some time until it get all the oil out of the engine and exhaust system, just let it idle, do not drive it until the smoke quits, you may get a check engine light also for O2 sensor and or catalyst threshold, but after the smoke quits and you hit the highway to do freeway speeds they should turn off unless they were damaged by to much oil. You may need to have the codes cleared after the smoke quits and you have made a good freeway run just make sure you don't have any problems. If the check engine light turns back on after all this then something is damaged. Or find a neighbor that has some tools and a drain pan and drain out enough to bring it back to the full level. It will smoke now no matter what way you choose cause you have already started the engine.
