Oil level?

E320 4matic wagon. Oil level is a tad above the full mark on the dip stick. Owners manual makes it seem that this is really bad. Is it?

If you are measuring the oil level when the engine is hot, a tad above the max should be fine.
Otherwise if the engine is cold, you better remove some oil. Too much oil will damage the engine. Google it.

Check it through the MFD. If that says it's okay, then relax.

BTW, you have a W210 and you are better off asking specific questions about your car in that forum. This general one is about all Mercedes...

Good luck.
