Thanx. I had interpreted it to mean the crankcase was filled with only 3 quarts instead of 4. Now after reading your replies and rereading Gonzo's statement it makes sense.
I understand the problems with overfilling the crankcase.
Here's a good one. I remember as a kid I went to my Grandfather's garage (he owned a small trucking company) to change the oil in my Uncle's car. This was my 20-something Uncle's very first car, so he was "mechanically-inexperienced". My Grandfather showed my Uncle how to drain the oil and change the filter. Once that was done he told my Uncle to fill the oil through the valve cover cap and then went into the office. Well, my Uncle John took the oil hose and, following my Grandfather's instructions, proceeded to fill the engine with oil. When my Grandfather came back the oil was filled to the top of the valve cover! True story.
