    Maybe I am being too obvious...but did you reset your oil life message after the change. Access it thru the DIC and push and hold for a few seconds.

    The low oil level message has nothing to do with oil pressure or oil life.

    Normally, I'd say faulty level sensor, but its low in the dipstick. You're sure you're reading the dipstick correctly?
