Welcome to MF. As far as your question, I believe too much over fill can cause damage. I'm not sure exactly how much more but I would get her down to the correct level just to be safe.

Welcome to the forum. When you say "level look good tho", do you mean its between the marks on the dipstick? I think .3 liters extra won't hurt you.

I've put 6 qts when I had my 4.0 a few times, like an idiot not thinking and never had an issue. However after those few incidents I always used 5 qts.
