The system is constantly checking the engine oil level (dynamic
measurement) with the engine running. It assumes that you added oil if you opened the hood
. It takes several days, IME, for it to come up with a recalculated value. There is no way to accelerate this process.
You can check the oil level while driving by accessing the MMI once a new reading has been calculated.
If you want a real-time, static measurement: open the hood, engine off, view reading in MMI. I'm quite certain the engine needs to be hot for this to work.
