Re: oil cap

I suspect the sump pan will need to be removed from the engine to retrieve the dipstick.

If the car has a digital guage, personally I'd use that, as long as the handle for the dipstick fits into the stem securely. It won't damage the engine if it's left in situ.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
