Hey guys, I checked my oil level tonight and I noticed that the oil level was in the middle of the threaded markings on the stick. The stick has 3 holes in the thread markings aswell, one at the top of the markings, middle and bottom.

I didnt think that was right so I checked the manual. Turns out there are two different dipsticks for the V6 and V8's. I have the one for the V6.

My car is a 2005 CTS-V 5.7 LS6

Has anyone else came about this at all?

Thanks for the help!
