Re: Renault Scenic - Oil Level Read Out Explained

In fairness the dash oil level indicator is pretty accurate. I managed to snap my dipstick about 6 months back and struggled to find a cheap replacement (dealer wanted 45 + vat). I wasnt too bothered because my car rarely loses oil .

However an oil service was due, so I managed to find a replacement dipstick, my dash read oil OK 00000-, when reading dipstick my oil was just under maximum.

As with a dipstick, I found that if you park on any sort of incline, then you get a false reading, many times Ive had a message " oil low" when parked on an incline and everything was fine.
