Hi, my name is ***** ***** need to immediately drain the oil, and change the filter, have you driven it since you put it in?

ok, you need to change the oil as soon as possible, a engine flush would also be reccommended, but first the oil must be drained, once it is drained, fill it with fresh oil, and then use a good chemical engine flush in it, we use BG QUICK CLEAN, then run it for about 10 minutes, and then change the oil and filter again, then you should be good to go,Tim
