I cannot check the oil reliably because one of the former mechanics broke the tube that the oil dipstick goes into. It broke off a piece about 8 inches long.

    you can get the tube at the dealer parts. the tube can be pulled out but if more breaks off, you may have to drop the oil pan to knock the remaining piece out.
