15qts and I'm still low on the stick?
Thanks for all of the helpful information on this forum. I've been able to tackle several projects on my X based mostly on the info I've found online here (FICM). I decided to start doing my oil changes and fuel filter changes myself and it was a breeze.
One issue is that now that I've changed my oil with exactly 15qts, I'm showing low on the dipstick. Right on the word low actually. I've read plenty on here about how it's not good to overfill the 6.0L.
Is there any chance that my dipstick is reading that far the wrong way? Since I changed my oil while it was fairly hot and also on my sloped driveway could some of the HPOP oil drained out as well? ( checked the oil on flat ground after a test drive)
The fuel filter on the frame rail was crazy tight coming off and back on, is that normal? So far no leaks.
