I just checked the oil level on my K5GT.
It's in the middle of the dipstick.
Granted, my car is on a slight incline where the front end is facing downwards. Has anyone checked their oil level on a brand new car?
Shouldn't it be full?

So I moved the car onto the street where it's level. Let it sit for 10 mins and checked again. The level is lower. I should mention that the engine is cold. Car hasn't moved since yesterday morning.

After warming it up and letting it sit for 5 mins, the level is a bit lower than halfway mark.

Fast answer, yes, however as long as it is in between the high and low marks it good. I plan on changing my oil after first 2000 miles to get rid of all the microscopic contaminates from new engine break in. Not required, I’m just anal.

I'm waiting for the first 1500kms and I'll do an oil change and then at 6k again. After that it'll be every 6k km's. I'm anal like that lol.
