Default Just changed oil. See a bunch of little bubbles on dipstick. Help!

Changed the oil on my 2003 TXT that is lifted. Followed the directions in the tech section.

Removed oil filter and let it drain. Cleaned filter and re-installed. Filled with 1.5 quarts of oil.

I ran the cart around the block and then parked it in the street. When I check the dip stick I see a bunch of very tiny air bubbles in the oil. Like the tip of a pin sized air bubbles. Is this normal? Or did I overfill somehow?

From reading on here some say to jack up the cart on the passenger side to allow more oil to drain out of the oil filter hole. How much more should come out if I were to do that?

I thought I maybe overfilled but the oil level is correct. It's right at the ADD mark on the dipstick.

I think I'm freaking out over nothing.

I don't have a gas card but when your cart is lifted the motors at a bit of an angle from what I understand. so the dipstick will not read correctly anymore. did one and a half quarts of oil come out of the engine? it could just be over filled

1.5 quarts is the correct amount to add for a 2003 TXT Gas.

what I meant was if only one quart drained out and you put 1.5 in you might have over filled it. just a thought.
