I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.A 1/2 quart won't hurt anything. It's not suggested to do and if it was a quart or more I'd suggest action. But a 1/2 quart won't hurt anything. That being said it's easy to drain a little.
Let me know if you have any questions.I strive to provide 5 star service. If I satisfactorily answer your question please rate it as such and hit submit. Doing so is the only way I get compensated for my time. Also it doesn't close the discussion so we will still be able to communicate if there are further questions.

It is difficult for me to drain from the bottom of the car. I purchased an oil extractor, but it won't fit through the dipstick hole. I just want to be sure that the extra will not cause any engine or other damage.
