One thing really troubles me. I did an oil and filter change. I added one quart and a majority of the second. Fired it up and let it get warmish then checked the level. No oil on the dipstick. Added the remaining oil in the second quart. Repeated the level check proceedure and there is still nothing on the dipstick. I've got two quarts in and it's not registering anything. I never even had to wipe the dipstick. Bone dry.

What am I missing?
