Toyota HiLux 2010: Will too much oil cause damage?

Asked by Mark

I noticed that the oil is 13 mm above the high mark on the dipstick of my 2010 Toyota Hilux SR5 diesel after its six-month service. Is it possible this high could damage the engine as the Owner?s Manual states, or am I been overly concerned?

13 mm is a long way over the top, but I doubt you would do any damage as a result. Even so I would be asking the dealer why it has been overfilled and to drain a little out so it is back to the high mark on the dipstick.
