Re: Overfilled the oil and some dripped

What you circled looks to be the intake manifold. You're ok, just wipe it off.

I would suggest taking it to an oil change place to drain any excessive oil. An eye dropper won't do as the oil is at the bottom of the engine in the oil pan.

Look Outside

I can see it where I poured it in though. Or will it make its way down so I can't see it?

Did you pour it in the engine, or the thin little tube at the back of the engine?

If it's the thin tube, that's the transmission fill tube. Do not drive it! Tow it to a shop, and explain what you did.

No way, I poured it where it says "Engine Oil 5w30" or something to that effect.

OK, check it in the morning on LEVEL ground, and see what the dipstick reads.
