Drained the oil and only recovered 4 1/2 quarts of whatever the factory or dealer had in it. Before I measured that I put 6 quarts of synthetic in it. Dip stick shows too much oil. Now I have to take some out.
What kind of mess do I have and how would you get close to 6 quarts out? Do you run the engine or only put 5 quarts in?

Start all over again. Use a clean oil catch. Put oil drain plug back in then refill. Do not start engine till a good reading on dipstick.

I take the oil plug out and then the oil filter and I've never had a problem with it all draining out. Make sure the engine is at least warm, of course.
