Hello
Should I worry about oil over fill? I think I put it too much. Should I drain a little?

Here's level of the engine oil on cold engine. It is above dotted area
Automotive tire Motor vehicle Hood Automotive design Rim


What do you think?

it can be fine but i would drain a bit out... if you got an oil transfer pump or a syringe type of fluid transfer device you can push the pipe through the oil level pipe and syphon it out that way... if you don't, it can get messy doing it via the sump plug but it can be done if you loosen it gently and let some oil escape while holding the sump plug in place... you'll probably get more out and way to fast that way but as long as you use a clean container you can just use that oil again to top it up properly...

ps you can fill it to half way of the dipstick measuring bit and it'll be just fine.
