    Why wait I don't but am not low. I check after car sits 24 hours prior to start. Always just barely over fill mark (est 1 mm above.) Hasn't budged starting at 160 miles...503 (current.) Not saying my check at cold is right, but so many say low makes me wonder do they wait for accurate read.

    Lot's mention smoke color at re-occuring frequent starts that's indicative of blow by where positive c.c. pressure and vacuum on clean side air intake is getting (some) oil from rocker cover pressure relief line plumbed into air intake manifold coupler. Can't imagine too much though.. hm...

    Oil level should be checked with a hot engine after at least 60 seconds of shutdown on a level surface.

    Revelation 9: A high-capacity engine oil cooler is standard Hellcat equipment. The factory-fill lubricant is Pennzoil Ultra Synthetic oil in a 0w40 viscosity grade. A total of six heat exchangers live at the front of each Challenger SRT powered by this engine.

    After watching the videos it's pretty obvious they want you to use that Pennzoil ultra platinum pure. Thanks for info.

    But more variance that way in my experience I expect to see it high checking cold with less variance. I did that a few tmies just to see diff hot and cold on stick. But realize that's the pc way.

    No cold isn't apples to apples. Cold oil could be any temp where hot engine oil is more consistent
