Hi, I have a 97 Deville which is new to me. I changed the oil with the required 7 1/2 quarts of oil. The reading on the dipstick is not on the top lines of the dipstick. Where should the reading be? Thank you.

Even lower than that is just fine. When the oil drops off the tip of the dip stick you STILL have 5.5 qts left.
I only put 7 qts in at an oil change just to make it easier.

Here's a representative Northstar dipstick:

Please read this Technical Service Bulletin (the link in Post #1), especially the paragraph on page 3 concerning proper oil level.
