Just bought a 2001 Escape. When I check the level [in P, warm engine] one
side of the dipstick shows fluid consistently lower than the other. About 1
inch dfference. So if I rotate the stick on insertion, the level is either
about 1/3 inch above the crosshatching or 1/3 inch below.
I've done this repeatedly. I've left the dipstick in for several minutes. I
still get a variation. Weird.
How do you folks determine the level with accuracy?
