Re: need help
What I would do (assuming this is a 5qt pan) is get a slightly longer dipstick. Change the oil minus 1 qt, start the engine and let it circulate, then let it sit for a few. Check the oil level and scratch a mark, that will be your 'low' line. Add the 5th quart, let it sit a few, then scratch your full line. Make sure the stick you get does not touch the bottom of the pan. If it does, trim it off.
Can you post a pic of the engine? Curious to see how much of a tilt the engine has.
