Yeah, and it can also cause the piston skirts to break off and fall into the oil pan. No joke. Been there, done that.

Check the level on the dipstick. If it is overfilled, place a large oil drain pan under the drain plug and drain out a little at a time. Keep checkin' the dipstick until it registers correctly. Messy, yeah, pretty messy. Just about ruins your manicure.
