Malibu Oil Change

I changed the oil on my brothers 2010 Malibu tonight, he has the 2.4 L4 in it. After draining all the oil out and changing the filter, i added the 5 quarts and let the car run for several minutes. I then shut the car down and checked the dipstick level, however it shows nothing. I then drove the car around for a few minutes and checked it. It then showed full, but once i wiped it off and checked it again, it once again registered nothing on the dipstick. This worries me. If you have any information it would be greatly appreciated.

You need to let the car cool down and let the oil drain back down to the oil pan. On my 09 Malibu that is what I do after I do my oil changes and I also add 5 quarts of Amsoil to mine and it fills it right to the correct level.
