I had my buddy fix my car up at "OTECH" its a class through school and he put two quarts two much oil in my car, i drove it for a little while and i had some problems my car wouldnt turn over. I relized it when i checked the oil it was way past full. My buddy knows alot about cars and his dad is the one of the BIG SHOTS at GM but what could this have done. When i drained my oil it smelled like it was mixed with gas, could one of the valves leaked and mixed these.

well, when you have that much oil in there it churns and makes a foamy bubbly substance in there and it can really cause problems.

the same goes for automatic transmission fluid. 2 quarts overfill is not a good thing. Do a nice oil change correctly, then run a compression test.

remove all the plugs, prop the gas pedal to wide open throttle and screw the tester into a cylinder and crank the engine over 5 or 6 times.

do each cylinder and they should be within 10% of each other.
