Hi everyone.. so I mentioned before I thought my 14 Optima was starting to burn oil excessively. Brought it to dealer for oil change because I wanted to see if the kia filter with the special valve would make a difference. Get the oil changed and about 5 minutes later i pull over to check the level. First pull shows over the full line. Of course engine warm. I wipe, reinsert and wait a couple minutes and pull it out and it is at the half full mark. Says they added 6 qts of oil..hmm. I'm starting to wonder if they are measuring the oil when the engine is running which of course is going to show full. I noticed valvoline does that... I always check the oil stone cold or a few minutes after turning engine off. Am I missing something?? Either way it should read full if they put 6 quarts of oil in like it says on receipt... Orange dipstick too if that makes a difference.. Thanks..
