I've checked the forums for this particular issue but have not seen another like it. My HSE has the typical oil leaks and recently, I have found that regardless of when, where or how I check the oil level, the dipstick always shows over full. Last night, it would not start because of no oil pressure. I put 3 quarts in and it started right up. Even with the no pressure, the dipstick still showed full. At this point, I'm ready to push a bottle brush through the tube to remove any sludge or oil left there causing the incorrect readings. In researching this, I ran across a thread about removing and reinstalling the tube. I'm not sure what is involved in that but I am open to any suggestions to allow me to accurately read the level. I don't want to blow the motor up.
