Oil dipstick malfunction?
Good morning. I'm having a problem with my 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt. The other day I checked the oil. I was alarmed to see the dipstick was bone dry. I added half a quart. Later that day I pulled the dipstick out after the car had been sitting a while. It showed oil at the max level. I wiped the stick and attempted to check the oil level. Again bone dry. I added another half quart and checked it the next day using the same procedure. Same results. Full when I first pull the dipstick out, bone dry after I wipe it. What's going on? I know the vehicle has oil in it.
