my be the wrong dip stick, wont be the first join the geo forum and ask. or do your own oil change, put in the exact amount in the FSM or op guide. then dipstick it, at the full mark.? then dip is right. if not, then wrong. easy huh?
There are two main causes for sludge, not changing the oil and filter at regular times, and not running the engine long enough to get it hot. You might want to get a second opinion from a shop other than the dealer. The dealer may have a sales promotion on engine flushes this month.
Yes there is a sensor located on the front of engine on the transmission side(single wire). It cannot be "reset". Possibly loose connection at the sensor,or a faulty sensor, OR... you could be losing oil pressure inside the engine somewhere(lets hope not) these engines are designed to run on very low oil pressure compared to cars of days gone by. The sonata 4 cylinder runs about only 12 psi. The V6 is 7.6 psi or more.
So if it is an oil pressure issue it is extremely important not to run the car before it is fixed or you will need an entire engine.
