Which is more dangerous?


Salam and hello benzer,

I would like to start a new discussion...

I know both are not good for your car. However, as cat are always curious which is more dangerous:

1. Overfill your engine oil or
2. Under fill your engine oil?

Love to hear from you...

Re: Which is more dangerous?



bro, as usual, i'm always direct and specific to the posted question although i sometimes like to beat around the shrubs and join in the fun...

so, being specific first...underfill would create more harm....do note, you didn't ask to elaborate and hence, no explanation on why i think that...

and by beating around shrubs...how overfill (hehe! until the oil pours out from the filler) and how underfill (a small cappuccino cup)?

Overfill engine oil membuatkan pusingan engine menjedi berat,manakala underfill akan menyebabkan permukaan komponen menerima kurang bahan pelincir.

underfilling is worse, overfilling just makes it leak oil

Re: Which is more dangerous?
My assumption is under fill means way less than the minimum level indicated on the dipstick and overfill means is way more than the maximum level of the dipstick.

Based on the assumption under fill is more harm than overfill. Under fill will affect the lubrication of the engine, hence result on wear and tear. Whereas overfill doesn't affect the lubrication function of the engine but it may result on leaking due to higher pressure to the oil seals etc..

So, my practice is whenever I send my car for oil change, be it engine oil, ATF, power steering or brake oil, I will double check to ensure it is on the optimum level before i leave the workshop. Please don't take for granted that the workshop boy care for your car. even with the reputable service center.

I absolutely agreed with bro Yap statement...coz it happen to me.More worse than just overfill or underfill oil.What a silly mistake.But again, everybody make mistakes n there is no wrong/harm to admit the mistake that u have done.

Back to the topic..from my experience underfill below the minimum dot is dangerous and harmfull to the engine.Overfill way more than the maximum dot will some sort makes your engine feel heavy.

^^^^^^ as per all ....

Overfill, just release some oil lah.....

Underfill = oil starvation, especially at high revs $$$$

Note : IF any of you go tracking, have your oil at minimum half or 75% of the full level on the dipstick.Do NOT have it full. Check when the engine's cold. If any of you have a dry-sumped car, the oil level must be half at warm idle. (Dry sumped cars have the oil checked with the engine running warm at level ground)
