I've noticed that on my 2.0HDI parked on level ground I get a full set of 000's showing that oil is at the correct level.
Parked up on a gradient such as a kerb and the display shows a few ---'s indicating low oil but park up again on level ground and allow the oil to drain back to sump and levels are ok again.
This is also confirmed by the old dinosaur technology of "Remove and wipe the dipstick before re-dipping and checking again". Don't I just love the old retro fool-proof ways or am I being a Luddite once more???
Stop parking on the kerb. It's illegal.
You wouldn't do it in the Borough of Wimbledon.
So, don't do it here.
I'm watching you.:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
Technically old chap, I don't park on the kerb, but rather park straddled across it with two feet on the pavement and two feet on the highway.
What has this got to do with having lipstick on my dipstick????

anyone else's oil level indicator show nothing on first start up in the morning? I tend to ignore mine now as I know it's bloody useless and rely on the dipstick too..
