I was doing an oil change on my 2005 nissan titan and when I took the drain plug out no oil came out. The dip stik still reads full.I changed the filter all normal. Still no oil out the bottom. Put the plug back in. Dip stik still reads full. Started the truck ran for ten min. Pulled the plug again removed the cap. Still no oil. Can you help please.
