@Tek'eek, perhaps this is the place to create such a thing. A wiki page could become what you describe.

comment How far can I drive with too much oil?
@Sarah, please take our suggestions on "how to deal with this yourself" as a compliment. You are clearly at a level above the "a car is an appliance" crowd since you're checking your oil with some regularity. One of the things that we're trying to develop is a set of suggestions for those who are away from home, lack a broad selection of tools or are in limited circumstances.

@Sarah, it's your car so, as usual, you have to make the call. If you'd like to give it a try, tubing of the right diameter is likely available at a supermarket, drugstore or hardware store.

For clarity, did you check when the engine was cold or hot? How about when you filled the oil?

comment For the love of all things sacred, what technical reason was there for GM to put a different connector on each side for the rear oxygen sensors?
This question will likely get votes to close since it's open-ended and hard to definitively answer. For that sort of open-ended "what's wrong with X that they would do Y?", might I suggest the chat: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/340/general-discussion We're a lot more loosey goosey about what we talk about there.

While I can appreciate the appeal for sanity in a world gone mad, it's not clear exactly which question you're asking. Are you trying to adapt one O2 sensor to a different fitting? Or are you really wondering what demonic spirit possessed the design engineers at GM?

comment correct English name for specific car part
Could you point out the part you mean (e.g., by adding some lines directly in the image)? It's not obvious if you mean the control arm or the bushing that it's connected to.
