Lol, I know that Pugs, but the reason I did start it was because I was wondering if it was weather-related (been pretty cold here during the nights and mornings for the past few days, well pretty cold for Los Angeles). Yes, it was risky, but I didn't want to overfill without checking to make sure that it wasn't because it was too cold (did that before and had to take some out). I promise it is getting as much oil as needed before the next start up. At this point, I'm gonna assume its been leaking/burning on the passenger side. I'll try the 20w-50 to be safe. The transmission fluid seems awful low too. I got nothing but crud on the towel when I wiped down the dipstick.
