I accidentally overfilled my elantra with a quart too much oil and now it is leaking from the front of the engine somewhere could the seals have blown out from too much oil. What does overfilling a car with oil do to it?
Do you

It builds up high crankcase pressure and you probably blew out the front crank seal or cam seal.
