    I always forget that I have the bonnet switch bypassed so even with the bonnet open, it's closed... according to the car.

If you look at an engine design, it requires a lot of oil to seriously overfill it. More problems come from increased crankcase pressure blowing seals thanks to cranks and rods/pistons trying to run in a bath of oil
    your right the rods bend when they push the pistons out the side, its a self oil lowering measure built into engines with negative pressure sumps. the problem is after the piston comes out and lowers the oil a little you cant get them back in, there worse then plastic clips
    If at first you do not succeed, maybe your just no good and should quit!
