Wasn't there an oil dipstick reading thread not to long ago?? I have been searching and can't find it. I didn't want to start a whole new thread. Lol took my truck to dealer yesterday and even over night sitting my oil level is reading very top of dip stick. Appears to be a quart or so over full. Seems I read that a lot of guys have this issue and it's nothing to be concerned about. I didn't want to drain a quart out if I didn't have to. Thanks! I'm sure the tech probably just pulled the plug and put it back in when flow slowed down. Then put 12 back in. Should I just drain a quart ? I have a tool I can suck some out. Thanks.
With over a 1.5 hour drain or so on a HOT engine (coolant to operating temps and oil temps around 205*F), and after adding 3 full gallons, mine always appears about 1/8" above the checkered area of the dipstick.
I'm guessing your tech is installing the full 12 quarts...but not draining for the minimum :30 minutes.
