Dip sticks don't lie, so that's good. But adding an extra quart over spec at oil change just doesn't add up. I would defintely investigate fast if you are going to run with the "extra" oil in the crank case. If it was me I would run with the the amount of oil the book says simply to avoid killing the engine due to possible overfill - until you get someone to tell you what the deal is. Have you been underneath to verify that this oil isn't recently improving your rust protection?
