Re: oil dipstick reading
yup, it was parked level overnight.
and yeah, I think I will get rid of the picture haha, I went out to check again, and it doesn't look nearly as bad as the pic shows it to be.
It does though, level off just under the top of the crosshatched part, as it should, but half of the stick has oil going another inch or so past it- after I cleaned it and put it back in multiple times. I'll keep an eye on it, thanks guys.
