I believe I out too much oil in my truck. Now when I press the gas and while it's parked, it shakes. Not a horrible shake but enough to make the hood rattle. I'm not sure what happened. I put 2qts in because it was pretty low. It wasn't doing this until after I out the oil in.

Did you put the oil in the gas tank?

You need to drain some out.Too much oil is as bad as too little.That is not the cause of the of what you describe.

"Guest & "guest" , you are both wrong !
You seem to forget or you just don't know that all engines have crankcase ventilation systems and because of that an over fill of oil will not cause excessive crankcase pressure & blow out seals .
It is however possible that if you already have bad seals for the problem to be aggravated by splashing more oil on an already leaking seal .
I'd rater have oil dripping or pouring out than have no oil at all .
No oil & your engine will lock up in a very short distance.
Excessive oil & you may possibly have some already leaking seals show up .
The final authority has spoken. End of thread.

Too much oil and the crankshaft will turn in the oil causing it to foam up. The oil pump cannot pump the foam and you will not have adequate lubrication in the engine.

I have no idea of what the problem is, but it sure makes me glad to see some people, at least, willing to put themselves out there to help another person they don't even know. Maybe there's hope for Jonesboro after all.

More worse have to little oil than to much.
Always let your vehicle sit level for a while then check oil. Be careful to put just a little in. If your low line says 1 quart then you can be safe putting in 1 quart if it isn't down that far yet then just put a litte in and check it again later.
Never rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr have to much.
