    A dealer overfilled the oil on my 599. Oil came out the side vents. A mess. Don’t fill above the half quart low mark on dipstick.

    You cannot clean hot film air mass meters, only the earlier hot wire air mass meters can be cleaned. Once your 599 air mass meters are contaminated with oil, they are junk and must be replaced.
    What fault codes are stored? If related to mixture, then that is another indication that the air mass meters are defective.
