Checking Oil In Your Crankcase

When checking for oil in your crankcase, use a 3/32 drill or punch and measure from the tip of your oil dip stick up ¾” and then punch or drill a hole.  This hole or mark will indicate there are 3 quarts of oil in the pan.  Measure 1 1/8” from the first hole and punch or drill the second hole, this will indicate 5 quarts.

You will notice the holes or punch marks you’ve made are well above the L & F markings on the dipstick.  If you have number stamps, stamp a “3” between L and the hole, and a “5” between F and the hole.  This will give you a quick reading of oil in the pan.
