I’m working on a Nissan Murano, and have been trying to check the oil level on my car. The mechanic said that the car is slowly leaking/burning off oil (I believe into the engine), so I need to top off the oil when it drops too low.
When I go to measure the oil level though, each time I pull out the dipstick, it makes no sense - the oil is somehow ABOVE the L/H reading, but not in it.
What’s going on here? What am I doing wrong? My steps are to remove the dipstick, wipe it with a paper towel, re-insert, pull it out, and flip it over to read it (the L/H bit is facing down). The car has been in a garage overnight before these measurements and the temperature is 55-65 here.
