Which makes me wonder if its overfilled or ?? I wish someone knew how honda does it as this is my first foreign car ever.. other than that it I have no complaints, after tires, cv joints, and a general tune and fluid change, and the leaky gasket it should be a great car.. runs like a swiss watch.. but bogs when you get on it hard.. so I think it may need a tune eventually, uses no oil or shows no signs of being overfilled?
You're overfilled. Oil level needs to be between the two holes.
How's your oil level now?
