    In the manual it says check the oil.
    Cold Check,with dip stick screwed in all the way,then checked it should between the two arrows,which i think means in the middle.
    Hot check, with dip stick secrewd in all the way,then checked it should be at the full mark.
    My problem is when i check hot or cold im getting oil up to the full mark.im near sure the last time i done oil change i got half way mark on the cold check,have i a problem here,i just about to head off to France in the morning.

    ps: It also says in the manual not to rely on the cold check, so what your thoughts.
    Also no oil seems to be coming from airfilter and i done 50 miles today.

    Don't expect the cold fill mark to "track" the hot fill mark. I use the Cold mark only to know I have enough oil in the engine so I can run it. Then once Hot, I check the Hot fill mark fluid and go by that.

    Always check it hot then you'll know for sure what the lever is .
