Vague readings on oil dipstick

I have a 2006 2nd gen Prius. Does anybody else feel like the oil reading on the dipstick is a little vague? On my Cobalt and on my truck it's a very defined line exactly where the oil came up to on the dipstick. But, on the Prius it's more like I stuck the dipstick in the oil then drug it across something to smear the oil back down the dipstick. Maybe this is happening when removing the dipstick because the tube is so small.

I'm fairly confident in my oil level reading, but I'm wondering if anybody else is experiencing this. I just got this car a week ago and I've been constantly monitoring the oil level to make sure it doesn't leak or burn any oil. So far so good.

Honda Elite 150 dipstick

Hey folks, 1987 Honda Elite 150. hearing mixed information on whether or not to screw in the dipstick all the way when checking oil, or to only dip it in without threading.

Thing is, I've added the specified 0.8 quart and perhaps a bit more due to my oil level only being in the bottom of the hashmarks on the dipstick when I checked it after. With it screwed in. On level ground on center stand. I don't wanna over fill it but it seems like I'll still need to add more to be at the correct upper level if I'm not screwing it in when checking.

So can anyone solve the great debate on whether or not to screw in the dipstick all the way when checking oil lol

Help with oil change on old Westinghouse air compressor (2 dipsticks!)

Pics in Link

http://imgur.com/gallery/3VRy8kH

I have inherited an ancient air compressor (tank manufactured in 1939) and I want to change the oil. The air compressor is a Westinghouse Typ 337 Pt and it appears to have 2 dipsticks and 2 oil drain plugs, one on either side. I let out the old oil by opening both drain plugs but it seems to be one single oil chamber reservoir, as when I pour oil in one side it comes out the other side and vice versa. However, there are what apears to be 2 oil dipsticks, one short one and one long one. I have addes fresh oil to the fill area of the long dipstick (150-200ml), but obviously the short one then remains dry.

Anyone have any idea what the proper way is to refill it with oil and why there are 2 dipsticks?

2018 Subaru Impreza Automatic CVT, Auto Shop says they can't inspect my front and rear differential gear oil because my car does not have a dipstick

I took my car in for my 30k check up, and I am going by my car's manual to avoid any unnecessary costs. The manual says to INSPECT front and rear differential gear oil, but the auto shop has told me they cannot inspect because my car does not have a dipstick. They recommended I get both front and rear serviced as it is standard for 30k miles.

30k check up is pretty pricey, so if it's something I can wait to replace for my 36k or even later, then that would be ideal. Or should I take to another shop or my dealership to get it inspected?

Where is the Transmission Fluid Dipstick?

Hey guys, my car has been stuck in Limp-mode for about 7 months. I have a 2000 E-320 base model, NOT a 4-matic. I believe my transmission fluid is low because i went and checked it with a custom dip-stick I bought on amazon. I shoved it down there and when I pulled it back up it was dry.

So, I add transmission fluid while the car is on, and I start to see very little smoke come from the engine bay; it is not a lot of smoke, but enough for me to notice. I look for the source and it looks as if it is coming from the spark plugs or UNDER neath the sparkplugs where a sheet of metal is.

I went and turned the car off because now I am unsure if where I was adding the transmission fluid was correct. Is this a common thing to happen when adding transmission fluid? What should i do next? I haven't even finished putting all of the transmission fluid in, I only put one quart.

Thank you for reading.

This is what my dipstick looks like: https://imgur.com/a/67F1vyE

As you can see, it appears as if the oil is at the low mark. However, when I use a piece of paper towel and dab the top of the dipstick where the full mark is, I can see the towel soaking up oil. So does that mean my true oil level is actually at full? I'm just confused as to why the bottom is black and the top is light oil.

Airline tubing got stuck in dipstick tube and could not remove it by pulling it out to remove some of the oil (plan failed)

The tube is for providing air to my fish in the tank. Thought of removing a few oil out of the engine. Didn't work so I tried pulling it off and it got jammed in there so I tried pulling a little harder and it ripped apart like there was a lid that only open from the outside. I can still put the dip stick in though. I think about 60 cm of the tube is left in there, maybe more less of it. What would happen if let the plastic tube inside and run the engine. The plastic is made of vinyl. Will it melt, torn into pieces and go into the oil filter or will it cost a major problem to the engine? The car is honda civic 2003 1.4l hybrid.

EDIT: I was able to remove the tube throught the drain plug by using a borescope camera and a metal hook from a cloth hanger

Got my second dipstick test for Kratom today after not using for over 30 days and still came back positive.

Some context: I'm on drug court in Nebraska and recently they've started giving us the dipstick kratom tests. The first time it happened I told them the truth, that I had used some that morning and that I didn't know it was against the rules. The next week they gave us new paperwork saying that kratom was officially on the naughty list of substances we could not ingest. Fair enough, I just stopped cold turkey on about 15/g per day roughly (7 grams at ~9:00AM and 7 grams ~7:30PM). I was definitely a pretty heavy user but that original positive test happened on December 28th.

Should I even be worried about the retest they're doing? I extremely paranoid now but I haven't used any kratom whatsoever since then, I'm just trying to judge. My Google research shows that the half life could be 24 hours for heavy users which still means I shouldn't even be worried but I just can't be too sure.

2006 Toyota Matrix - Dipstick was BONE dry upon checking, can I just put in new oil and a new filter?

So after seeing the 'Maintenance Required' light turn on, (it's maybe been around 7,000 miles since the last oil change, normally I'm right on top of this at every 5,000 but a lot of shit has been happening lately and I haven't had any time to get to it), I went to check my oil level just for peace of mind and it was completely dry. Yikes. I haven't heard any unusual noises or any difference in behavior, but I wonder if it's possible that any damage has been done if it's been this way for maybe the past two weeks... I've probably put between 400 - 450 miles on it in that time, with no drive being more than 20 minutes, or around 18 miles, at max. I did have about 1.5 quarts of the 5w-30 it takes lying around, so I put that in it and am hoping it's fine to drive 5 minutes to the Advance Auto near me for the rest.

My car also had the P0171 'System Too Lean' code thrown back in late October, and my local mechanic estimated me at around $200 saying I have a bad intake manifold gasket. Mone

My trusty E46 is developing a few issues now (188k mi). It's been using a bit of oil since forever, that didn't bother me. But it's gotten worse and I noticed the dreaded light-brown colored foam on the dipstick (not on the oil filler cap though). I've replaced the crankcase ventilation about 3 years ago, which is AFAIK the usual source for the foam. I also read that this could lead to oil loss. Could it be failing again?

Dipstick results all over the place?

Hi, recently FINALLY diagnosed and waiting for Uracyst instillations (doc's earliest opening was Feb 25, ugh).

Because the pain is so frequent I feel like I never know if it's an infection or just more cystitis BS. I have dipsticks that show leuks, nites, and pH. When the pain gets bad though, the results are all over the place. Leuks I'm used to, that one's all over the place anyway. But every now and then I'll have nites and I don't know what to make of that. Reading online tells me that's a definite infection, but my next dip will be completely clean.

Are nites just a thing that's all over the place too sometimes? How the hell am I supposed to know when to see my doctor?

How do you read an engine dipstick? It smears as you put it down.

I know how it's supposed to work. (pull up, wipe everything off, put back in, pull back up, read level).

But when it goes around the bend in the tube leading down into the engine, it smears engine oil along the whole shaft of the dipstick and then it becomes hard to read.

Mayo on dipstick and under filler cap

Vehicle is an 86 Ford ranger with 2.9L

I was losing coolant through the heater core for months and the oil was perfectly normal. Finally I got around to replacing the heater core and now I am not losing coolant. The level has remained the same for 2 weeks. I doubt this is relevant but I'm not sure.

Anyways, the day after I replaced the heater core I noticed the classic Mayo on the dipstick and under the oil cap. I started daily driving the vehicle (25 min highway trip to work) to try to rule out condensation and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Some days it's really bad and some days it's just a little bit on the stick. Doesn't seem dependent on how long it was driven.

I changed the oil a week or so ago and no water came from the crank case. The oil looked perfectly normal. That combined with the fact that I'm not losing water is leading me away from head gasket failure but the fact that driving extended trips doesn't fix the problem is leading me away from condensation.

What is the volume between low and full on the car dipstick?

Is there a certain volume? I fill my car and it barely reads oil until I add the last liter. Then it goes from low to full.

I’ve seen many annoying people online say that if you don’t have any mechanical knowledge then you shouldn’t get a bus. I’m lucky to read the dipstick correctly. We did a ton of research and got a lot of preventative maintenance done before hitting the road and it’s been great, 5,000 miles driven.

Urine glucose false positive? Dipstick + Chemistry

Hoping to pick your brains here to see if this is something that happens on the human side of things. I had a urine sample from a neonatal cat contaminated with "baby wipes". Both the stick and chemistry glucose are coming in high. The baby wipe by itself produces the same result on my dip stick. However the baby wipe fluids(No urine) when ran through my chemistry analyzet showed no elevated glucose levels that I saw previously.

My only deduction is that I have a positive sample, with a false positive dipstick occurring at the same time. Any thoughts?

Can CVT Fluid Corrode Dipstick?

Hey all, wanted to check my CVT fluid levels so bought a dipstick online a few days ago.

Just now reading the notes on the item and it says:

  1. This dipstick for checking fluid levels only. Not recommended to drive with this dipstick in tube because CVT fluid is corrosive.
  2. After checking the fluid level, please reinstall the original plastic plug.

Is this true? I've only driven it a little since installing the stick, so I'm not worried, but I tossed the old plug. Will leaving the stick in cause it to eventually corrode and mess up the fluid?

So there was a 91 mariner blue at a junkyard today. Myself and bf drive 3hrs and showed up 30min b4 opening with a few other ppl. The car was preyed up by vultures as myself.... But no one grabbed this dipstick. The car also had a hardtop that got sold before it hit the lot yesterday for $90πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Replacing oil dipstick tube.

I'm curious how hard it is to change the tube on a 3.8. The opening is rusted and wont allow the dipstick to seat properly. Is this something I could easily do in my driveway without a jack? I'm pretty new at doing work on my own vehicles but ever since I got a wrangler I'm wanting to do as many of the repairs as I can.

Transmission noises. 2016 ecoboost 4x4. Getting some rough noises from the transmission when I first start driving. Once the car has been driving for 5-10 min. Pulled the cap for ATF to check level and there's no dipstick. Also see photo. Should I just take it to dealer? Have extended warranty.

LPT: Filling your engine with oil and you have no funnel? Lift up your dipstick halfway and use this as a guide to pour your oil into the engine. As the oil will spiral down the dipstick smoothly. Reference in the comments.

Dipstick handle broke off.. wtf

I accidentally leaned against the oil dipstick handle which caused it to shear off. So no pliers we're really an option. I tried using a knife to get a tiny bit of leverage from side, that just pushed it down further. Currently wheeling in Moab with a buddy so I don't have access to all my tools. At this point I'm thinking either drill a small screw into the plastic or JB epoxy. Neither of those are easy/attractive options where I'm at rn though.

Anyone have thoughts?

Quick Question About Oil Dipstick

Is the oil level at a good spot, because it doesn't go across the width of the stick is that measurement good? Idk I'm new to car maintenance, I'm a teenager, haven't checked in the past 3k miles. Thanks.

(05 Chrysler Town and Country) end of dipstick broke off when I tried to remove it to check the oil. Now what?

Exactly what the title says. The rest of the dipstick looks like it's lodged in there pretty good and there's none sticking out of the hole to get a grip on. What do i do about this? I was thinking about trying to super glue the end back on but I'm worried about glue leaking out and super gluing the stick in completely
