The first time you pull the dipstick out you want to wipe the oil off so you can get an accurate reading. We’re going to go ahead and put it back into the engine and we’re going to fully seat it and pull it out one more time. This second time we can now actually take a look at the graph and see how much of oil we have in this car. All dipsticks will have a graph, holes, or marks for the low and high readings on the dipstick. This particular Ford has a checkered area, while others may just have two lines.
