You always go by the reading on the stick with engine running, and warm. I have a Mazda6 with an external cooler, and although sometimes hard to see the level on the stick, I do get an accurate reading located in the middle of the the 2 lines. On some it has a temp range on the stick which you use as a guide.
I also do a drain-refill about every 2 yrs. to keep the fluid fresh.
I added some I will check it Cold and Warm :)
It was reading some oil when I took it for the spin it was at the bottom but I guess better then dry :p

Thank You
