    5 qt of Oil in a 2006 WRX, did I damage her?

    Hey Guys.

    I accidentally put 5 qt of oil in my WRX when I changed it, I emptied the whole 5 qt jug.

    I let the car drain for a while with the plug and filter removed so I am sure that it is not much more than that in there.


    On the dipstick the oil is above the F whole but below the notch, after I drove it around hte block.

    Did I hurt the car?

    Should I drain it?

    The notch is the actual max so if it is below that when it is hot it is fine according to the manual. I doubt it's enough to matter regardless, but use your own judgement.
