Default Need help from '95 and '00 SE owners - dipstick question

I swapped the motor from my '95 SE with an '00 I picked up from my local salvage yard. The '00 didn't have a dipstick, so I snagged the one from the '95 before we returned it as core. After refilling the motor with oil (4.5 qts), I'm reading a quart low. My question..... could I get a '95 SE owner and an '00 SE owner to measure both the dipstick length and the dipstick tube length please? Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

Just checked... They are the exact same length... But the position of the crosshatched area is diffrent... On the newer 3800 II'* the cross hatch area is lower on the dipstick as compared to the 95 dipstick

Dipstick on top is for the 95, the one on the bottom is for the newer motor... full on the 00 dipstich would be a quart low on the 95'* dipstick..


Not sure if that helps at all... But thought I'd throw it in there...

Anyone know if there is a diffrence in tube length?
