Default After UIM and LIM repair?

Ended up using the Dorman UIM kit. APN had no inventory. MAP Sensor was cracked and had to replace it too. They refilled it with DEX. I guess I need to get it flushed out good and refill it with other kind of collant huh? What do you recommend?

They also changed my oil and I noticed this morning after letting it sit all night that the oil level is about one inch over the FULL mark on the dipstick. Is this a big problem, or can I drive it like this? I have a long trip starting this afternoon, and do not have time to get the excess oil out.

I picked the car up just as they were closing yesterday, and didn't have time to talk things over with them much.

The DEX should be fine. Many will tell you get it out, it'* junk. But it'* fine. It just needs to be maintained like any other fluid.

You should have no problem with the oil, as long as it'* not way over filled. Keep an eye on it. Drive for a while and then check the stick. If it'* foamed up it'* to full and getting stired up real good by the crank.
