I'm going to take the old oil pit in the new oil containers and make sure I put enough oil in
check it cold...Oil level check
I just bought a 2004 coupe. Thought I would check the oil level.. With the engine running, warm,, oil is way above the max mark.. I checked it with the engine cold and off, it was right at the max mark.. I guess when you check it with the engine off, the oil level is lower on the dipstick. I guess I will have to change it myself to do it right.
Well that post is 7 years old and appears to refer to the Coupe, which has a dry sump engine, and needs the oil checked a different way. The post should probably have been put in the 4200 section.check it cold...
did not find the HOT check in the manual... huh
Do you know what the difference is between the two types of filters? I have a feeling the (new) dealer used the wrong one last time my oil got changed. I have a dry sump engine.Verify if the engine is a dry sump or wet sump. I heard of people using a wet sump oil filter on a dry sump system and it caused issues.
