    Usually comes with a small freeze plug to block off one of the holes.

    Hey, two is always better than one right? Wives, K5s, Steaks, Cases of Beer, dipsticks, etc...

    If one is low, you can double check it with the other. As far as the oil fill, they must be new at their jobs or know nothing about cars.
