Pull the dipstick & lay it on a while cloth. That should work.

The timing chain will likely outlast the engine, as long as regular oil changes are done.

If she does get it, the thing that will probably be hardest for you to accept is.... there is no printed service schedule anymore, i.e. nothing that says "change the oil every 5,000 miles". The car tells you what to do and when, by way of the 'maintenance minder'. If you follow it to the letter as I do on my '07 Accord, oil change intervals of 8-9,000 miles are possible. It all depends on how you drive. If I took my car and moved to New York City, it would probably tell me to change the oil at 3 or 4,000 miles. That's the beauty of the system - it's dynamic, and based on your driving habits and location.
