Last year the guy stuffed a probe into the exhaust
This year stuffed a probe down the dipstick hole as well.
A Thermocouple.
Test has to be at 80 degree C he tells me, avoids arguments about whether engine up to temp or not.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
