when i first got the car just about a month ago i checked the oil and it was dead nuts on the full mark. i just looked at it again last weekend and it was a few click over the full mark. what gives :huh :dunno: :tense:
Well, maybe the oil fairy secretly added some oil late at night while you slept j/k. Did you check it in the same spot? If so, my guess is it wasn't all the way in when you checked it the first time. As you should know by now, this dip stick has to be inserted at least 2 or more times to get a proper reading.
That is odd, I had the same thing happen as well. I checked my oil early on and it was right on the full mark. I just checked it at a gas station yesterday and it was about 1/16th to 1/8th of an inch over the full mark. I'll check it again and see if the same thing happens again. Weird.....
I check my oil first thing in the morning before starting the car in the same spot at least twice a month. I've never noticed an increase.
In fact I don't see how that's possible (all else being equal such as temp, incline etc.) unless some other liquid is getting into the oil or it's not being read right.
