Dumba** attack when changing oil, have a ?

Changed the oil in my truck and things didn't go as smoothly as past oil changes had, I basically looked as though I had bathed in diesel oil . While still dwelling on all the crap that had happened earlier I went ahead and poured a total of 16 quarts into the engine, when the manual states 15 as max. Should I attempt to drain a quart from the pan or will the engine be ok running a quart high?

If your wanting to take some out, pull the top filter cap off and suck some out with a syringe.

I drive an awl into the bottom of the oil filter and let all the oil drain out of it before I remove it. It saves you from the oil running down your arm.

Thats what my wife does when she changes her oil... Yes, my 125# wife changes the oil on her Excursion... And does it with her nails and all.

Poke a hole the the filter with a awl, screwdriver or what not...
