well i changed my oil recently and i was too damn cheap/lazy to change the oil filter, so i just drained the oil and put in new oil...i figured another 3,000 miles on the trusty honda filter won't hurt...when i filled the engine with oil, i put in 5.1 quarts like the manual says...afterwards, i remembered that i already had some oil in the filter already...so the dipstick now reads slightly above the upper mark...is it harmful to have too much oil in the engine? if so, then i will have to drain some out..=(

If it is just a little too much, it shouldn't hurt. However, if it is quite a bit too much, you can blow the rings and possibly some other things.

Viet, you really need to drain some of the excess oil out. It's not healthy to have too much oil in there. It's easier said than done, but if you're really careful it can be done.
