It's very unlikely to be that much overfilled.
I would do that but it is not parked on even ground so it won't give me an accurate reading. Before i had this problem with too much oil, i did test it when the engine was cooler. It had been off for 40 mins or so.
When i checked the oil it was a little bit below safe instead. So i drove off to my friend and then it was waaaaay to high instead.
Im off to my mechanic tomorrow morning.
