Engine oil dipstick question
No matter how long the car has been parked, the dipstick has oil almost everywhere, often from the bottom all the way to almost 40% of its length. I promise that when I changed my oil, I let the last drop of oil to come out and only added 6 qts of oil to the engine.
However, if I watch carefully, I can still see that the oil level is only at the dipstick's max position. Above that, there is an area of no oil, and further above, oil is everywhere. My question is about the oil high up here. What is going on here? Why does oil gets so high above on the dipstick?
