I need an advise guys, i changed my car engine oil yesterday its a pajero 3.8 lwb 2010 model. 

At the time the mechanic done with refilling the new oil hr show me the new level and it was above the maximum mark with 1 cm i told him you put more than required he said no once you drive the car the extra oil will go in the engine oil filter. 

Honestly i didn't believe that however i decided to go home and check again the next day morning when the car run the oil into the engine and the filter as per his comment. 

However today morning i checked the oil level and it's still the same 1 cm above the maximum mark. 

So the question is that harmful?

Should I drain the extra oil? If yes how to do that DIY ?

Ps: I only drove 30km since oil changed. 

Appreciate your advise guys.

You can go to any petrol station service guys and they have a thin suction tube that can suck excess oil from dipstick hole.

Well there are only two ways to reach engine oil: Drain plug or dispstick.

From opening drain plug you will risk of loosing more than required, unless you have some precise control over a spanner. Dipstick is much safer and controlled way to reduce with the suction pipe.

As a general rule of thumb you should not overfill engine oil above the max line and 1 cm sounds quite as much. I always buy an extra 1L bottle to top next day rather than overfilling.

@Barry, @treks and @shadow79 might advise the drawback of overfilling as Im not that technically educated.

Overfilling almost always leads to premature seal failure and increased zeal in fuel consumption

1 cm in many cars means 250 ml to half liter

Better say to measure is warm up then let it sit for 30 other 40 minutes

Or more precise one is to leave it overnight and check 1st thing in morning

It would be better to remove oil and check it again

I think the guy applied 6 cylinder so toss 6 liter principle

      After yesterday's drive while coming out to tarmac, I experienced little intermittent blinking of engine oil and realized that its time to top up. After coming out I topped up the engine oil to MAX level which was earlier close to MIN level but in safe zone. Then after topping up still engine oil light was blinking on highway, so pulled over and Jalil checked if oil is coming to lifters from engine oil cap and it was all fine. After one day cool off, just started the car and now its no longer blinking but more of a constant light in D and no light in reverse.
      Any idea what is happening and how we can fix this.....?

      What is more important and relevant in car service: Time vs Kilometer driven?
      I just schedule my Range Rover service with Al Tayer and they said I need to get the major service of 120k kms, while the car is only driven 68,000 kms. Their logic is time-based vs km - whichever comes first.
      They gave me this logic last time too when I sent the car for service and they carried out 108k service when the car was 58,000 kms driven. I somehow felt uncomfortable but went with the flow to not to spoil the service history, which has been regularly maintained by the previous owner.
      This time it's quite over the top with major service estimate, where they say they have to change rear diff oil and transfer box oil every 5 years or 120k kms.
      Is it really required to change rear diff and transfer box oil at 68k kms with 5 years of life.....?
      If you say Kilometer driven is prime then why all car manufacturer has this in their maintenance schedule, let alone UAE but everyone uses the same approach globally. Please explain why......?
