My oil level overfill was due to a ham fisted mechanic who serviced the car before it was handed over to me when I purchased it. I removed 2 litres to bring the level down to the 3/4 mark, then 4 weeks later I removed all the wrong oil they put in and gave the engine some proper Castrol Edge 0W-30 A5/B5

I take it this issue only affects diesel powered cars, as I had a "check oil " message on dash when away for a long run yesterday in the V50 2L petrol, but all seem good.

First time Volvo owner - 2007 V50 2.0L, and now a 2nd Volvo joins the V50, 2012 C30 2.0L
