not much aside from it probly going to spew it out where ever it can find a way out till its level. Just get a oil pan (preferably a clean one) and lossen your oil bolt (not take it off) and let it dribble it out till you have 2 quarts back in the bottle. be sure to have a rag handy you will get a little messy since when the bolt is loose in the pan your going to want to adjust it by hand.
