Oil change help

Recommended Posts

Just had car in for an oil service, got home and checked the oil and it seems dirty to me? Done about 6 miles home, also the coolant tank is way over the max, was just below when I dropped the car off. Does the oil look fresh!?9482764b3848bce03d0c6f38a165eae3.jpg201709 ... 65eae3.jpg"><a href=https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170901/9482764b3848bce03d0c6f38a165eae3.jpg' alt='URL>'>db4fbde09778976c2ad47fc8091a631d.jpg201709 ... 1a631d.jpg"><a href=https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170901/db4fbde09778976c2ad47fc8091a631d.jpg' alt='URL>'>

Tbh my oil was almost like that after my service at a different garage I must add, but that coolant does seem over the max mark is it not?

The oil will go black almost immediately, as there is always some dirt/left over oil in the galleries etc. I would not be concerned, even if this was my car.

The coolant does seem a tad full. As Simon has said, is there a min/max mark on the tank anywhere ? If so I'd be questioning the garage

The coolant is way over the max mark, max is halfway on the tank!

I had a problem with air in my coolant for ages and it kept filling back up above the max. Shouldn't happen but the engine had been in bits and the coolant refilled without using the vacuum pump
