If engine oil levels are too high, the crankshaft counterweights can splash through the oil. This can cause the oil to aerate. This becomes more likely as the RPM's increase, or when the car accelerates or performs abrupt "maneuvers". The oil pump may then pump air instead of oil. This is not good, as air does not lubricate engine vitals nearly as well as oil does. I am not sure of the exact level at which this is a problem in your particular engine, but best to heed mfgs. warnings on such matters.
