2. Be sure the vehicle is on level ground in P (Park) with the parking brake set and the wheels blocked.

3. Turn the engine on and allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.

4. Turn the engine off and wait about five minutes for the oil to return to the oil pan.

5. Pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean, and re-insert it fully.
