Just changed my oil with 6.1 quarts (per the manual) and my oil level is at the bottom of the hashed marks on my dipstick. Anyone else have this problem?

did you let the engine get a little bit warm when you checked it? If the engine was cold it's not surprising that it was at the bottom of the marks.

Actually, if the engine is cold, the oil will be higher, not lower. After an engine sits, all the oil runs to the bottom of the pan, where the stick is. When hot, it's all over the engine.<p> Al
