ahh, yes. ive done this too. fhucking humiliating when you find out you screwed uo changing your oil!

ORIGINAL: lookinforastang

mine was overfilled.

i forgot to drain the second plug (up front) and forgot that its a 302 (4.94L)

ended up putting 5 quarts in

got online and found out theres actually 2 plugs DOH. too late now though.. new oil is already mixed in with some crap oil.

it was reading over the full mark for a couple days

i have a dirt driveway, 1 way lane road right in the city so its not like i can just work on my car whenever i want.

im just going to drain both plugs when i hit 1000 more miles. ive had no problems and all my sensors work (i know they do because i turned the key on, engine off and i had LOW OIL, NO OIL sensors flashing lol)

You're going to be fine with that much. When you way overfill an engine with oil though, you create too much oil pressure and you can blow some seals, which is never good.

In regards to your claw thing. Are you saying that you are not able to get FL-1A on without the tool? I just ordered a shorter filter though I would feel better with the normal size.
