I'm too broke now. I'm doing it the old fashined way, take out the dipstick and wipe it a couple of hundred times.

yeah too full bad

Yeah too full is bad - foams and adds drag - loosen a fitting to the oil cooler and let it leak out.

Should sucked it out with a straw or something, that's what I did to my friend's once.

I took out about 8 ounces,

I took out about 8 ounces, size of a regular drinking cup. I can't take it down to oem levels because I have a aftermarket oil cooler. I drove for 40 miles the gauge didn't move much. We'll see how the next take will be. This one is ruined for sure since I did a lot of 4K idling.

Smile Here is what I learned

Well, here is what I learned from a well written book ?Complete Car Care Manual? published by Reader?s Digest (1981, page 202). ?You may accidentally overfill it and cause as much damage as you would by operating the car with too little fluid? with regard to overfill of automatic transmission fluid according to the book.
