Dipstick question on '04
As you know the dipstick has 2 sides: one side with the L-H designation, and the other "blank" side.
After running it, letting sit for 10 mins, the "blank" side indicates it's full (i.e., if there were indicators on the blank side, the oil would read H). However, on the indicator side, it barely reaches L.
What is going on? How can one side of the dipstick be in oil, and the other side indicate adding oil? Is it because it is angled somehow in the crankcase?
Any insights on this? I don't want to run on low oil.
