On what length wire and at what level would a "normal" reading be for the fluid level? And are there multiple places the wire could bottom out that would have varying levels showing on the makeshift dipstick? Would a 12 inch wire bottom out? 10 inches? 15 inches? I don't have any idea of what a "good" reading would be via that method. A friend of mine came over today, and stuck his finger into the fill hole. Fingertip came out dry. But what does that mean?If it was too low you would have noticed it when it sucked air into the system. The only other thing would be the oil would run a little hotter.
If you are concerned, just use a piece of wire or something clean and stick in down your fill port as Seven Gables suggested. If it is wet when you pull it out you are good. You may can even see the level through the fill port with a light at this point.
