Re: Oil Dipstick at add, 1500 miles?
Hi, no it's not normal, but it still happens. Valve seals are sometimes a hidden oil burner. After the car has sit for a while, have someone start it up for you and look for a puff of smoke that lasts for only a few seconds. Also let someone drive it [while you follow] and watch for smoke when they let off of the gas pedal or while coasting down hill. These are signs of bad valve seals and most people never notice the smoke while they are the driver.
Note: this is just one possibility.
