do you fill the oil filter with oil? If not there's a reason why it shows high since you are pouring 4.5 quarts straight into the pan. Always fill filter with oil during replacement!why when i change my engine oil & filter and put 4.5 qts back in it always reads overfull on the stick on level ground?
yep your right checked it a little warm and it was goodAll Hondas are meant to be measured when the engine is HOT! this is because oil circulates and gets stuck on the sides of the heads and block this means the oil level will drop as opposed when cold when the oil has time to drip down and artificially rise the oil level…. Never check the oil level Cold vs Hot... You use 1 method only.
-If you want to check it when cold do it in the morning the level should be barely above the full mark.
-If you want to check it when hot do it after you used the car and turn it off, check it after a minute later. Oil should be between both marks.
