Just changed the oil in my daughters 1.8 and everything went fine until I got home and poured the waste oil in an empty 5 qt contained and noticed there was only 3 qts. I added 4 qts of oil but only drained 3. I let the oil drain about 20 minutes and the engine was warm when it was draining. She was in a hurry and when I checked the dip stick it seemed high. I have done multiple oil changes and never had this happen. It's as if a qt failed to drain.

Quite sure that it was the large filter - as was the one that was replaced. It is much larger than the filters on any of my other vehicles two are V6 motors along with 2 4 cly. I am hoping it's not sludged. It is baffling that I added the same 4 quarts that I always do but it is overfilled. It does suffer from the broken filler tube, cracked yellow plastic tube that the dip stick insert into. I ordered a replacement today.
