    can too much coolant damage the car/engine?

    just got my car back from its 60k service and now when its turned on i get an engine warning light come on and warning beeps. i looked in the manual and its the engine coolant warning.

    the warning light (and warning beeps) usually goes away after a minute whilst the engine is warming up.

    checked it and its filled to over the MAX line. will this damage the engine/car at all?

    if its just over it it shouldnt be too much to worry about, remember when the cars hot it expands a bit so can look like theres more in it.
