Hey guys quick question

I added seafoam to my crankcase, roughly 1.5oz per liter. The dipstick that read full prior to adding seafoam now reads over the max line. My question is, do I want to empty some out so there is the correct volume of liquid in the crankcase? or is overfilling not an issue because the overage is not oil?

thanks

You aren't going to have it in there for very long, so I'd just drive it a bit and then change the oil.

Should be OK as long as you don't drive around at high RPM's and floor it everywhere. Some of that Seafoam will burn off anyway.

I've been adding it right to the oil without takin' any out for years. Has never been a problem for me. But like it was said, no crazy driving and its only in there for about a tank of gas anyway.
