IF, you could get all of the old oil out then yes you would put a new filter back on and fill it with 5.5 quarts.

I typically have an open bottle than can be used to "top off". I do as Tad does and then after a day or so, I'll check it after it's sat over night. If it's a bit low I'll top off.

The short answer is to fill it until it is full. I usually like it near the top end of the ADD and FULL lines on the dipstick. At the FULL line is fine, and I won't add oil unless it's below the half-way point between those two lines. So I could be up to 1/2 quart below "FULL." I don't burn enough oil in either vehicle to notice, so keeping it at exactly FULL isn't a priority.

the stick is now showing over the Full line....should I take some out??
depends on how far over.

but taking 'some' out may not be that easy.

anyway, just go back to the dealer and tell them you want the oil at the correct level and let them deal with it
