Too much oil at last oil change: what to check ?

Just done the oil change... and discovered that the latest oil change was really a big joke:

1) He didn't put the Mobil 1 I asked for, but another synthetic 5W30 (Texaco), that's why I went somewhere else this time !

2) The level was between 1/2 inch and 1 inch too high. Maybe that's because he wanted to invoice me 7 liters of oil ... and I drove a good 7500Miles like that.

3) The new oil change was done with the right oil and at the right level.


Anyway:

- The car runs fine (smoother after the change)
- The oil pressure is fine
- The engine bay is clean
- No DTC thrown by the computer
- I only use the Ford RACING oil filter

What should I check to be sure nothing was damaged ?

As long as you have no leaks, since the oil change with over fill you should be just fine. What normally goes wrong when you over fill your oil, is that you risk the chance of blowing a seal. But it sounds like you're fine, Mike. SCT Tuner.

70 BOSS,with a 71 429 SCJ 8.0:1 compression with an F-3 Pro Charger and 39lbs. of boost. Rectangular Tube Chassis, Custom 17" Magnum 500 Wheels. Just way too much to list, but what a ride. P.S. Hang on tight!!!

I agree with the others. There's extra room in the oil pan anyway.
