My Vel Satis 2.2dci was delivered by transporter this weekend. Driver said it had dropped
onto his trailer.
We opened bonnet and whole engine and engine bay was covered in
. Dipstick did not register any
but dash display said
OK. There is no obvious leak but dipstick was not fully inserted. I notice that the hole for the dipstick is very low down in engine bay and I wonder if it allowed
out when car was at an angle on the transporter. Does anyone have any views please?
I had a similar fault on mine - cracked inlet manifold pressurising the crancase and blowing the dipstick out and
all over the engine. It took the dealer a while to diagnose the fault - fortuanately the car was under extended warranty and so the £1000 ish bill didn't hurt me as much as it would have done....
