    So I got 4K miles on my hellcat Chally. Haven't done oil change yet but today I looked at my dipstick and there was no oil on it. It's been sitting for a week. I'm not sure if it's a hellcat thing to not have oil on the dipstick or should I take it in? Lol

    My hellcat was near 2 quarts oil low at around 4k miles.

    Make sure you check it when the motor is hot...wait 10 minutes after turning motor off for an accurate read.

    I believe the manual says to check oil level at every fillup during breakin. It may burn significant amount during that time. Also says to check 5 minutes after shutting down.

    As for taking it in, add some oil instead and keep it to yourself.

    My Charger HC and my '15 Jeep SRT used about 2 extra quarts each in the first 5000 or so miles. Now they don't burn any, but I check it every week when I check all the other fluids and give her a bath.
