Just to clarify, you put the new oil through the dipstick hole? If this the case, that is not an issue but I am sure it took a while to get all the oil into the engine. The dipstick hole leads to the oil pan and the oil fill goes into the top of the engine and the oil drains down through the engine until it gets to the pan. Either way, the oil drains back to the pan so it is okay. Just make sure the bottom of the dipstick tube didn't leak. If you have oil on the ground, you will want to make sure your engine is full by using the dipstick to check it.

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks.
