    What is the best way to check oil - hot, warm, cold etc. I am thinking 15 minutes or so after driving a few miles

    Makes no difference.

    It is not going to expand so much as to give you an erroneous indication on the stick when it is hot.


    I check it before I start it up.


    Good luck!

    If you check it before you start it up, there isnt any oil splashed up inside the dipstick tube to give you a funky reading.
