    Cool

    When you add oil The dipstick should unsealed then check after the oil has fully drained into the pan.
    Did I win the riddle?

    my '98 2.5 does the same thing sometimes... a quickie-lube type guy told me he sees it with a lot of subarus; when the dipstick shows dry, ( but you suspect it isn't out of oil ) remove the oil filler cap and pat your palm a few times over the opening. check the dipstick and it might show a proper level. not sure why, but it works with mine
