It will be ok, but if it makes you feel better change it...

Not a big deal but I would drain it and replace the oil, no need to change the filter.

I would be more worried if u put 15w40 in it being that is for semi trucks, every vehicle I have ever owned I have always used 10w30 there really is no wrong oil as long as it is not 30w u just put a little bit thicker oil in it that's all

Thinner sorry
