So I finally did my first oil change today but I am a little bit unsure of something. After I put the oil into the car, I tried to use the dipstick to check the oil level to see if I am under filling or overfilling. However, I can't tell with the dipstick where the oil level ends.
I bought the 5.1 Qt Mobil1 jug and I used the indicators on the side of the jug and poured approximately 4.2 Qt. I know the engine requires 4.3 Qt as stated in the manual but I was afraid of overfilling it. I'm afraid I didn't put enough oil in, but at the same time I don't want to overfill it. Should I have poured more in?
Please help a newbie out!
