<font color="red"> </font> Can anyone advise me the likely effects if the Audi Garage constantly overfilled the engine with oil at each service. 5 litres instead of 3/4 litres.

Too much pressure in the engine leading to oil leaks as I understand it. Overfilling is as bad as underfilling.

relax... A diesel can take it if it's only a little, and besides, the oil sensor will also detect if the oil pressure is too high and give you a fault code then.

If there is really too much oil, it will however get past the cylinder ring and get burnt in your cylinder, which is not a good thing at all.
