Hopefully you do this with the engine off, some people haven't. After you stop let it sit for afew minutes before reading it on LEVEL ground.

If this is a dx or lx the proper amount for it is 3.2 qts w/o filter and 3.4 qts w/filter. Also get something similar to sand paper, like that red coars pads and clean dipstick. It may have the wrong dipstick in it as well if this is a used vehicle.
