Poll: You Won't Believe This. Engine Oil Overfill By 4+ Quarts = White Smoke
Yesterday was one of the most depressing days of my life.
Had my friend change my oil for me as usual. As I left his place lots of white smoke started billowing out of the exhaust. Pulled over within half a block and shut off the engine immediately. Called my friend he followed me back to his place a few blocks away. He pulls the engine cover and plugs. Spark plugs #1 and 4 have dried oil stains. #2 and 3 are wet with oil.
At this point my friend thinks it's either a blown head gasket or valve train issue. I decide to leave my car at his place and borrow one of his cars to go home and do research/decide on courses of action. Btw my initial searches here for blown head gaskets didn't return much, save the occasional Mazdaspeed 3.
Today he tells me over AIM that he figured out what happened and it was his fault. WTF!
He forgot to drain the oil before filling the engine up with 4+ quarts of additional oil!!!
Is my engine fucked? Vote in the poll. If so, which part(s)?
Man I was so sad yesterday. If it makes any difference, I'm using Amsoil in the recommended weight. Also I didn't drive far, maybe 5 blocks round-trip. The whole time I kept it under 2,500 rpms when accelerating. Let me know guys.
