Hello,

Last weekend I replaced engine oil on my 2015 TLX I4. Drained oil, replaced filter and filled 4.5qt oil as listed in the owners manual. I drove and checked the oil level after the the car cooled down, oil level on dipstick is showing only between min and max.
Should I add more oil or just leave it as is since I filled exactly what the owners manual said?

I always go to the full mark on the dipstick, I also consider the manual a suggestion on the amount of oil it should take as The dipstick is the boss in my book. Fwiw, I put in close to 5 liters on my last oil change to get it to the full on the 2.4l

Yes, it took close to 5qt when I did my previous oil change. This time, I went with what owners manual says, hence the confusion.
Agree with all of you, will fill it up to max level.
Thanks you.
