Hi..there..

Its depends by how much - if its way over the max mark on the dipstick then yes - it wouldnt do the engine any good at all..infact it'll likely cause increased crankcase presssure / blow oil seals / flood the pcv system or oil may find its way into the exhaust system..Its vital that if the oil level is way too high..The engine should not be run and the oil level must be re adjusted..in that some oil will have to be drained off to be able to get it back to the correct level...and all should be fine after that..I do hope this helps
