2000 SC1
Default Oil Level

Hi guys - quick question. I've searched like crazy and even though I've seen it a dozen times on here, I can't find how much above the crosshatch is ideal for an oil change. I think there was even a diagram. My brain hurts.

So, to the question. I got carried away during my last oil fill and I am over by a bit, but wanted to see whether I am OK. I am just above the second L in FULL. I seem to recall ideal is between the U and the L, but am I OK being just above the second L?

Thanks,

Rick

Default Re: Oil Level

Between the F and U on FULL. This is the point after you change oil and filter, run engine to warm, and let it sit overnight in a LEVEL parking spot where you regularly check oil. Then check and adjust. Each diamond or letter is about 3 1/2 oz of oil if you have to adjust. You can get away with a level up to the first "L" but that is a bit much in most cases.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
