    When measuring oil level when engine is cold and sitting leveled is the dipstick indicating high level mark reading,crankcase pressure can cause too much blow by doubt your rings are worn for a 2013 , but don't you
    have the new designed catch can since you have a 2013..

    the only time I had the IC like yours was when my oil level was at the high level though it was within normal the range..

    Where should my oil level be on the dip stick when cold?

    Around the hole on the left give or take 1mm keeps you at normal level,you should not be on the vertical line to the left ..

    I was reading near that line after an oil change and had rpms down,my IC looked like yours, running oil slightly lower IC has been spotless..

    Just hard to believe that much oil can be caused by SC fogging oiling..

    What do you all use to clean out the intercooler and dissolve all the oil?
