  1. Your oil level gauge is a 2 quart reading. 3 O'clock means one quart down (once the thermostat has opened). I tend to only follow it and not the dipstick, but that's me. Most on these boards go with TRACKRAT and use the stick. With 11 quarts, you are bound to have enough, if not to much oil, since its only a 12 quart system with both filters new, all lines drained (including the cooler).
  2. I personally have never found the drive cycles to work. The key is to not let the car idle after initial start. The system checks for readings from the O2's as they pertain to the SAI for 90 seconds (with 5 seconds after starting), so the trick is to start and go, almost immediately. Don't let the revs drop below 1000 for the first 2 minutes. The cycles that check, need to run twice from cold to change to the "ready" state we are all after, so with luck you can clear the codes, drive the car normally and within time you are bound to hit all the necessary needs of the "systems check". I've always found a track w/e to be the trick. I clear codes before I leave, and when I get back.........viola! Ready! :) Seems multiple WOT floggings does the trick.
