Here is what 2006 Chrysler Sebring owners manual states about checking
Checking Oil Level
To assure proper lubrication of your vehicle’s engine, the
engine oil must be maintained, at the correct level. Check
the oil level at regular intervals, such as every fuel stop.
The best time to check the oil level is about 5 minutes
after a fully warmed engine is shut off or before starting
the engine after it has sat overnight.
the scientific method according to seat-sniffing school bus drivers:
1. hatch your uninformed preconception
2. shop around until you find something that can be argued as agreement
3. disregard anything else however contrary - like calibration that
takes into account thermal expansion, drainback and environment.
4. post as above to newsgroups while waiting for the afternoon run to
You apparently lack any common sense. How hard is it to check what the oil
level is about 2 minutes after a fully warmed engine is shut off and then
check it again before starting the engine after it has sat overnight? How
hard is it to compare the result of those two checks?
how hard is it for you to acknowledge that people in alaska and people
in nevada don't have the same thermal environment? how hard is it for
you to acknowledge that engines operate at pretty much the same
temperature all the time, regardless of location? how hard is it for
you to acknowledge that some oil filer drain-back valves suck, still get
used anyway, but that it doesn't matter if you dip hot?
oh, wait, you're not interested in actual reality or facts because
you're too busy sniffing school bus seats. and because you're just a
twisted desperate argumentative retard that never had the brains to
contribute a damned thing in their pathetic twisted desperate
argumentative retarded life.
Yes absolutely. For someone with no common sense there can be insurmountable
problems. If you have flat tire it may also affect the accuracy of oil level
check. For someone with no common sense this might be an insurmountable problem,
but most people have a little common sense and therefore it isn't a problem worth
If you have common sense you might actually know whether you are in Alaska or
Nevada. And you might be able to determine if your filter or any other engine
component was not functioning properly. Checking the oil cold is one way to
confirm that the filter is malfunctioning if you notice the oil pressure doesn't
come up quickly on cold starts.
