      Ruins your catalytic converter if too much over. If it is just a alittle over don't worry about it.

      how much, like a quart? probably smoke a lot, might not take out your cat if your lucky. also it can hurt performance by slowing your crankshaft down

      WORST CASE--if you raise the level enough that the crank ends up whipping it into a foamy mess, you can pick up this air/oil mixure and lose oil pressure and spin a bearing. Again, this is absolutley the worst case...

      How much over was it? If it was a little and everything is fine now I wouldn't worry.

      if you think you put in too much, just open the sump and drain the oil and refill it again. not a good idea to put too much oil in the sump. can also damage your rings so i have been told.

      On a cold start it runs about a minute. If there is a loose air pipe it can sound like a vaccum cleaner.

      As somebody else asked:
      How much oil is "too much oil" when you put it in?
      Did you put 10 qrts in?
      Or just an extra quart?
      If you just put an extra qrt or two in don't worry about the whistling. Your car runs fine after it's warmed up, right?
      Mine makes all sorts of cold noises and it runs perfect "at temp".
      How much oil did you put in initially?

      Are folks on here just stupid? The Vr6 takes 6 quarts NO more NO less plain and simple1 God if you do NOT know that then then why and the hell are you even touching your drain plug. Go to a quicky lube and let some teen age boy who I guess knows more than you change your oil
      If you over filled it then fixed it you should be fine any weird sounds your hearing may be from some other thing you messed up.

      Well mine takes 5.00 quarts, exactly. Stock pan.
      Why don't you drain your filter, easy to do and should get you back where you need to be....
