Asked by Feb 08, 2017 at 09:50 PM about the 2006 Toyota Camry LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dealer put in 5 quarts (also indicated on receipt) instead of 4 when changing
the oil. Didn't check it until after I got home. When I called, they said it was
not a problem.
Is this extra quart a problem?

I would tell them to remove the excess oil.

Thanks! I am taking the car back to have them remove the extra. I did check the dipstick, but not until the next morning. It was extremely high. After checking the oil, I noticed "5 quarts" was indicated on the receipt. (The car takes 4 quarts.) When I spoke to the dealer they told me it wasn't a problem that they put in an extra quart --- that they often did that. What a no-sense practice and a waste of oil! I am taking it back to have them drain the extra. You would think a dealer would be more efficient.

In some situations if you overfill the crankcase with oil the oil will foam. This can cause loss of oil pressure and engine damage. When the oil foams the oil pump is sucking in air bubbles and not liquid oil. That's what causes the loss of oil pressure. Not good! HTH. - Jim
