You very well might have the wrong dipstick. Typical oil and filter change is 4.5L

This is from the 1998 Factory Service Manual:

4.8l for eng overhaul
4.0l for oil change, incl filter
3.7l for oil change, w/o filter
Hope that helps

you could have the wrong dipstick. I almost mixed mine up myself. A D and B dipstick look identicle but one's longer. I think the d one is longer but dont' quote me on that. I remember I had to change them from one of my spare's cause it was rubbin on the trailer i was moving it on.
