Question on engine oil change
I recently changed the engine oil of my SHO 3.0L. I have a question on
how much oil should be added.
When the engine is still (turned off), I checked the marker and the oil
is in the middle of Min ~ Max. However, when I turned on and warmed up
the engine, the oil dropped below the Min marker. I'm confused about
in what situation I should check the oil level. I read the "Haynes' Manual",
and it says "engine shut off, check ......". However I do remember from
somewhere (I forgot the source, sorry) that the oil level should be checked
when the engine is warmed up.
Could any professionals here give me some tips on how to check the
engine oil level?
