overfilled oil question
Just to keep it short, I had the oil in our 2001 C-320 changed at a place that was staffed by total idiots. They put 9 1/2 quarts in a 7 1/2 crankcase. By the time I was able to correct it, I had put about 200 miles on the car.
Question: Did I do serious damage to the engine. I have since put about 1500 miles on the car, and all seems well, but MB tells me over filing crankcase is not good.
Thanks for any info.
Oh, and yes, I am aware that this is totally my fault. I should have known better.
