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...
okay soo i changed the oil again and now its at a normal leave
the only thing is i hear a whistle sound when i start her up but when shes warm its all good
i think somthing is wrong i have no idea
what exactly is a ASI and yes its like off and on when its cold a lil whistling i dont really know what it is
so the leave is back to normal just that sound now when its a cold start but when i start driving its normale
my car never made that sound till after i put too much oil in
then i got it down to the rite leave and now i hear that sound on a cold start i even think i lost some hp does anyone know if theres someway of checken it out or how much it would cost to replace it >?

dont worry about it.
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?
well i checket my oil for my car one day and it didnt seem to have any
soo me in panic mmmmmm grab a 5 QT and start putting it in by the time i realized what a dum ass i am and stopet at maybe 4 or 3,5
QT i think i lost some hp i dont really know but not it seems to be fine
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.
