Reading the dip stick
« on: October 10, 2007, 05:41:52 PM »
This may seem a very silly question, however after 20 dozen attemps to get a clear reading i cant.
I remove the dip stick, i wipe it clean, i put it back in carefully, then i remove carefully (not shake around) and it comes out with oil to the start of the cable above the reading area. I put it in and not fully home and it still gives me oil all over the stick. I cant even get a bottom reading doing this.
 I have a reomte oil cooler running in front of my radiator, could this affect it?
Have i just over filled the level? does anybody else have troubles reading thier dip stick?
