Re: How much oil

A few questions about oil.

What does over filling do? presumably harm... Underfilling seems like there would be inadequate lubrication.

Isn't there more volume in the engine (and the transmission for oil than the oil required?

Although I don't service my car... done by dealer service department... I don't recall any regular oil changes for the transmission. Tranny doesn't seem to consume oil...(the way engine does)... Why change it? Does it become contaminated? What is the grade of tranny oil determined by?

pay attention... someone's life depends on it
