Recently I had given my car (1.4 FIRE) for service at Urs Cars Mysore. When taking delivery I checked and found all the fluid levels adequate. I postponed engine oil check to next morning when the engine has rested overnight. In the morning I checked the oil level and found it to be much higher than the "max" mark on the dip stick. I called the service adviser and informed him about the situation. He sent a mechanic to check. Mechanic told over filled engine oil is a problem only in diesel engines since it burns and causes smoke; it is fine with petrol engines and left. That is the quality of Fiat's mechanic training! I was not happy with the situation and was determined to reduce the oil level to "max" mark on the dip stick. I did not want to loosen the oil drain plug to drain the oil (because of various reasons). Only other way is sucking the oil out through the opening where the dip stick goes in. I went to aquarium shop and bought couple of meters of air pipe (used to carry air from the air blower into the aquarium water). It is 5 mm diameter synthetic material pipe. It worked perfectly - it went into the dip stick pipe all the way up to the oil sump! However, the dip stick pipe has a bend in between. Air pipe kind of gets stuck there when inserting, but if forced it goes through the bend and reaches the sump. Then it is easy to suck the oil out. I had to suck out almost half liter of oil to bring it up to the "max" mark. Hope it helps if you ever need to reduce the oil level without getting under the car to drain it out!
