I started it for a min then shut it off let it set for a few min and checked the oil and noticed it right at the top of the XXXXXX marks maybe a hair over.

Im going on a long road trip in a few days, my car has 4k miles on it

Should I drain a little out or will it be ok?
So you put in 9 or more quarts instead of the required 8. Check your oil again after your car sits for a while. Myself if I did this I would be draining some out.
