Dip Stick!!!
My dippy keeps popin up from its fixing in the sleeve, giving a false reading on start up that there little oil in the engine, have added plumbing tape but it stll is doing this! any idea's?
IIRC shouldn't there be an O ring near the top of stick? Bingo's not here so can't check mine. If there is an O ring is it old & perished or there at all? Is the dipstick tube mishapen? Do you have inreased crankcase pressure?
1.9d Mk2 (M59/BE4/5) with battle scars from a conservatory attack. Previously owned a 1.4i Mk2 Forte.Confusedalut:
Check the engine cover isn't loose knocking the dipstick, did it it on mine.
Somedays you're the pigeon, Somedays you're the statue.
i will remove the cover today, to see if this makes a difference, what would cause to much pressure?
Dodgy retaining clips
Somedays you're the pigeon, Somedays you're the statue.
didnt have a bloody chance today!!!
