so with oil measuring at the lower line on the dipstick, is that approx 9 qts of oil? At what level could you safely run these cars, not that I would ever get down to bare minimum but curious. I got caught in heavy stop and go traffic last summer (was 85 degrees in Seattle), oil went from upper limit on the gauge to lower limit in short order, checked the dip stick and confirmed was on lower limit, was pretty stressed out but was fine (4K on rebuilt motor as well, rebuilt K26 turbo). Now, after I changed the oil (run Kendall 20W-50), and after 1500 miles oil measuring just over half way mark on the dip stick, so interesting observation how at hot idle burning oil at a fast rate, is that a scavenger pump issue???
