Too much oil?

Hey guys... 95 2.5L here... Just finished changing the oil and I wasn't paying attention to how much oil I put into it... I think I caught myself around 5.5Q.... Is that too much to the point of damage? I'd rather not adjust it if she can handle it... Haven't driven it yet... Thanks everyone!

check the dipstick, if it's over the fill line, just slowly back out the drain plug until it's at a trickle and drain the excess.

Oil capacity for the 2.5 is 4 quarts+ a little for oil filter. I'd drain at least a quart out of it. If you're careful you could drain it into a oil jug and reuse it.
