How do you check the oil level? Is the dip stick in one of the screws?

Yes one bottle is good to fill, Vortec warns not to over fill, who ever uses the V3 should use the same synthetic oil.

You can also blow air "lightly" through the fill hole with the drain open to get all the fluid out.
Did my Sc oil change last night , measured what I took out with a ratio rite and put back in same amount = 1 bottle of fluid.

that will work as long as the Vortech doesn't burn oil like our engines do lol
