Calibrate lube oil dipstick-When replacing a missing or defective dipstick, replace the engine oil and filters, installing the exact OEM specified quantity. Run the engine for a couple of minutes then shut down and leave for 10 minutes. Dip the oil sump with the new dipstick and scribe the high level graduation with an electric pencil. Measure the distance from the high-level to low-level graduations on the old dipstick and then duplicate on the replacement.
