1 gallon is 4.5 liter (litre)

Say I over filled my engine by 1/2 gallon of engine oil what would be the effects

CRAPPPPP!!!!

Not Good!! The least that could happen is it would blow some into the air cleaners and perhaps out the CVS System if you were to bring the RPMs up to any degree, and the worst is it could blow a piston if the revvs got real high.

I would double check after IDLE ONLY and a shut Down, then Check again after 3 minutes. More than 1 Liter over at that time and I would drain the overage.

:(
