    Too much oil - damage spotting?

    After picking up my new car earlier in the week I did some routine checks this morning. Don't know why as the garage had 'serviced' itbut I wanted to check. Turns out there was way too miuch oil in the engine - I syphoned off at least 1.5 litres and hope it hasn't blown any of tyhe oil seals etc.

    How would I be able to tell if there was any damage done? Car is not smoking at all so I may have got lucky.

    Cheers

    Paul

    Usually it'll start blowing oil out past seals if there's too much oil in there.
