    You put in 6 qts. I have done this in the past. No problems. If you are worried drain 1/2 qt.

    I bought 6 quarts for the oil change, but I still have 1/4 bottle left, so I'm guessing it's in the vicinity of 5.75 quarts.

    But either way, no harm done from a little extra oil?

    Yea, i filled the oil filter before i put it on, started her up for a minute to get things flowing, waited 5 minutes and then topped her off. I guess i just added a little too much

    6 Qtrs. and you'll be fine. . . . . . . . . . . . . . As long as your not running a Fram filter.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
