This is going to sound weird. checking my palisade's oil level first thing in the AM, the dipstick reads at the bottom of the stick. Immediately rechecking it reads full. During 2 days of sitting in the garage the dipstick still reads full. On day 3 my wife drove the car about 10 miles and that following morning the dipstick read low on the first check and full again on the second check. I would think a dip stick would read the same oil level regardless of when it is checked. I cannot explain this. The dipstick does have a seal on it, but why a low reading on the initial check after vehicle operation and a full reading with following checks.
