Welcome to the forums from OK. On an oil change with filter, its 3 quarts, not 3.8. It is overfilled, just syphon some out and good to go.

Unless it's the auto tranny model. The auto tranny model holds 3.8 quarts. But yeah, it's overfilled if it's all the way to the top.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Ok yeah that would be overfilled. I forget about the AT sometimes and that they are different specs.
