warm up car first

suggest very strongly you warm up car before checking the oil level, as it can give a false reading when cold. take it for a nice long spin then wait a good 5 mins before pulling the dipstick. then you will have and acccurate reading. oil should not be overfilled (above the max mark on the dipstick).
