Place the vehicle on level ground. Start the engine and let it idle for 5 minutes. If the air temperature is below 100e (50°F), let the engine idle for an additional 5 minutes (a total of 10 minutes). Stop the engine. Remove the oil filler cap/dipstick from the oil tank and wipe it clean. Check the oil level by inserting the filler cap/dipstick into the filler hole without screwing it in.
The engine contains a sufficient amount of oil if the oil level is between the upper and lower level marks on the dipstick. If the oil level is near or below the lower level mark, add the recommended engine oil up to the upper level mark.
You only need to use the bolt check if you have reason to suspect the oil pump isn't working. If you remove that bolt the oil should be at the bottom of the hole, meaning oil won't necessarily drip out
