Oil Check.

Old Peter

Recommended Posts

It is not often I pose a question.  I check my Oil every week, as well as my tyres and tyre pressure.


I did the normal check this morning when the Oil was cold, and found that this dipstick registered slightly more Oil than when I last checked a week ago.


The engine is a 2.7 litre Diesel, and I do not put additives in the oil. My mechanic is checking with a main dealer for whom he used to work.


I am asking if any other members have experienced this issue?

peter, some times you can get a false reading!!! ive had to loosen Oil cap and dip it 2-3times. but like you i check it all over weekly tyres,oil,coolant,washers, and used to give the battery a wee charge every 2-3weeks but put a new one bosch s5 garunteed for 5years in april this year .but thers no harm in getting it checked out. ps how was the rugby did your team win. charlie

Hi Charlie,


We had a bad day. Castleford dominated the midfield and were very quick in the tackle and their defence was good.  Our half back were well marked, so I will not be in the stands at Wembley this year.


My mechanic is checking with a friend of his who works at a main dealer and will ring back tomorrow.


I check everything every week too!
