Engine Oil

I had my engine oil changed and checked it about a week later and it was
2-3 inches over fill line. I took it back and had them drain the excess.
I checked it again today and it is about 6-8 inches over and seem a little
thin. Radiator is still full of fluid. Where and how can the engine oil
be getting extra oil or fluids from?

Re: Engine Oil

Sounds like gasoline getting into the crankcase. But you gave the good
people on this group too little to chew on: what vehicle is that? what
engine? model year? mileage?

Re: Engine Oil

It would sound as if you are getting exess fuel past you rings and in to
your Oil. If you could describe you vehicle in depth we would be able to
be a bit more specific in the help.
