Hi guys.. Doing a oil change on my 2003 1.3 i've just got.
The oil level from pre owner was about 1" over the max dipstick mark. Just though he had over filled..
So i've put 4L in ran the car for 5mins and its again 1" or so over the max.. starting to think its the wrong dipstick..
Can someone do me a fav and messure the length of their dipsitick from the shoulder that rests on the head of the engine to the bottom of the rod... then i can see if this is the right of or I have some other problem.. god knows what else it can be though to read very high. Ideas welcome
