And I agree with your rant 100%. That is the stupidest thing. Either it waiting till the operating temperature, or waiting some amount of time for the system to cycle before it actually shows correct oil level is very dangerous tactic because like you said oil can be leaking and you will just wait till you can read the level. Go figure. But again, are there any mechanics who can prove it?
