check with motor warmed up... very important!!

the first time i changed mine i got the same reading... so i kept filling till i got a reading... big mistake!! over filled it.. after a few laps on the track, i came in and checked level.. well, oil was all the way to top of dip stick!! so warm engine up for a few minutes then check...should be perfect...

good luck

Dude, i was going to drag out this post and go through the whole oil procedure, but reading the manual is the best solution, and really is a must with the 426, if you dont pay attention to some small details it could get expensive.
