Engine oil dipstick level vs recommended sump volume which one to trust?
During recent service dealership, the recommended engine oil 3.6 ltr (using their jar) 0w20 was filled. After filling the oil still shows 2 cm lower than Max level. I filled about 1/2 ltr oil up to the max level.
Was I correct adding oil? I later read that excess oil may do more damage than good. Should I follow recommended volume (3.6 L) or engine oil dipstick? Help please.
Vehicle: Honda City VX MT Petrol 2018 (L15Z1 engine) 13000 km. Engine did not burn noticeable oil over time.
Love from India.
I’m not saying this to be rude, Were you on level ground when you checked it?
