I say drain the oil & toss the filter. Replace the filter with a new one & refill with 11quarts of new oil (providing you are still running a stock capacity oil system). Drive it & see.

I have seen cars with overfilled oil levels (V8's), that idle great, run fine at lower RPM's, but then pack the top end with way too much oil at high RPM's & smoke like a Calcutta taxi cab.
Overwhelming the valve seals is easy when they are submerged.
Just a though & my .02 cents worth.
