Re: Help Oil Burning following dealer 36k service

Started it up and it is smoking like a coal powered locomotive (blue oil smoke)
Sight oil gauge reads 1/2 glass at idle and full with engine off.
Did they over fill the engine oil???
Ideas will be appreciated as I will be returning to the dealer Monday.
Does it quit smoking after running a few minutes? If so, I'd guess it's the commonly known brick engine smoke at start up issue. If it smokes all the time then it is another issue.
