I just did my second oil change on my car. I put in 8 quarts of oil, but when I checked the dipstick, the level was right in between the full and low marks. I even wiped it stuck in back in to make sure I wasn/t seeing things. I pulled the dipstick out and the oil was definetly half way between low and full. Anyone have any ideas on this one? My car is a '80 300SD. Also, yes I waited a few minutes after shutting her off to check the oil. Does my car maybe require 8.5 quarts?
