First Top Up

Hello

Im a newbie so please go easy!

Ive had my 2008 Fortuner for just under 2 years now. Whenever I checked my oil at the fuel station it was always full.

Today when I checked it was 2 pints short. Is this normal? Should I have it checked out? Anything to worry about?

Thanks.

2 pints is a lot. After checking for obvious things like oil leaks and engine smoke take it to dealer for assessment

Just recheck the oil level when car is cold. Maybe they topped it up before all the oil when down to the sump....
