Dealer overfilled my engine with oil. What should I do?
I was lazy this time around and I just took my car for service. I checked my oil the next day (it was raining hard the day of service) and noticed it was overfilled. My guess, the techs got lazy and just filled it with 4 quarts (Honda specifies 3.8 qts). I know the dangers of oil overfills but 2/10 of a quart doesn't seem much, so I don't know if I should take it back to the dealer or just leave it be. I would drain it myself, but it's a matter of principle since I paid 43 dollars. FYI the oil is not frothy.

You could always just leave it and startdriving more aggressively..? Haha
I wouldn't think it would hurt, but you could just empty the filter like previousely mentioned, although I am not sure if oil would start dumping out when you took it off? But yeah that would probably do it!
