I added it and the level was still low. Added oil and was one notch from the top arrow. I decided to add a bit more and now it says >max. I figure I'm 1/4 quart overfilled. How to you guys suggest I fix this without draining everything and starting over?
Remove the filter and suck out what's left. Do it a couple times, running the engine briefly between. Electronic level reading sucks.
