Oil Extraction?????

898 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  robbyg
Purchased used 2017 crv with 18,000 miles. Have checked oil and it is above the mark, but not above the Orange tip. About a week ago I took an oil extractor and removed about 3/4 quart of oil. Checked oil 2 times since and is just below top mark, so I think my issue was a overfill day before I purchased.

Anyone else do this? Any reason this would not be good to do?

Overfills have been reported. Now that you know the level is correct, keep tabs on it.

Nope it was a good idea. Honda always seems to overfill them. The Mechanics seem to be too lazy to check so they just dump the full 4 Quarts in.
