Messing with the Mind of a Dipstick Co-worker by Playing a Little Fuk-Fuk Game

At many workplaces there is that One Guy who is universally disliked. At the place where my current insect overlords dispense whips and chains to peons, there is a guy who can be summed up by saying that, to call him a douchebag is doing a grave disservice to all the regular garden-variety douchebags out there. He wins the arsehole bingo - loud, obnoxious, opinionated; always trying to one-up everyone else; a thrower-of-hapless-workmates-under-buses; a teller of shit stories that have nothing to do with the thread of the conversation that precede them and that have no visible ending; bigoted and proud of it, misogynistic and proud of it; he regularly gets suspended from Farcebook and is proud of that.

Anyhoo, with all of his other personality β€˜features’, he likes to have certain things β€œjust so” - things he’s a bit...anal about. I have ascertained what one of these things is and I engage in a little bit of shenanigans every day, just to get the pettiest of petty revenges.

Every day I am at work, at some point or several points of the day, I go into the lunchroom, where there is a platoon of microwave ovens. I select a cooking time on one or more of them and press the β€˜run’ button then immediately stop it, leaving the display or displays showing a time-to-finish rather than the clock.

He hates it, it does his head in, he can’t stand it; I secretly chortle every smoko and every lunch as I hear him complain to nobody about Those Terrible People Who Stop The Microwave Before It Finishes And Don’t Cancel The Timer and he has to do it and Why Don’t They Press It, It’s Only One More Button Push.

Every work day, several times a day. For about a year now.

TL; DR: Nope, read the story you lazy shit.

Skoda Octavia Mk2 2007, Oil Dipstick Diameter.

I over filed my cars oil recently and I don’t want to have to get back under it to remove the sump plug.

I was thinking of getting some nylon tubing, a syringe and just draining out that way through the dipstick channel.

My question is, what diameter tubing will I need to accomplish this?

Many thanks.

2013 Transmission Dipstick?

I know the sealed transmissions that ford put in has no dipstick. But I was wondering if I could find an aftermarket dipstick, would that work? I have 151K miles on my 2.5L, and I don't believe the fluid has ever been changed before I owned it. But I'm also curious to see if the fluid is low without draining anything first, I'm worried that it's too far now and a fluid change might cause the tranny to slip or something. (though it's never slipped, just the usual 6F35 harsh shifts).

UPDATE: Friend pulled dipstick out of bike when motorcycle was running

Shop finally got back to me today, apparently it needs some new parts like a clutch basket and a few other things. They said they took the dipstick out of the gears and put everything back together yesterday and took it for a ride and it seemed fine.

They took it for another spin today after letting it sit and it started making noises, he said if I didn’t replace it the gears would just get all ate up and I’d be back to square one .

$850 fix all together,

Lesson learned, never letting anyone else near my bike who does know what they are doing .

Thanks for all the tips guys , wish it was a simple fix, I should have it back next week.

So I've went to get my oil changed at a place about 3 times now. The first and third time they've told me I have an oil leak in my motor. Right before I go I usually compare my oil life to the oil on my dipstick and it seems pretty accurate and I do not notice any puddles when I park.

How likely is It that they're just being dishonest? I don't actually recall them saying anything the second time I went.

Trying to find approximate oil consumption for my 540i, anyone know if the dipstick has specifications

My 1999 540i e39 was a little low on May 14th, I topped it off to the max mark on the dipstick

Today June 1st I check and see it's at minimum, just below the minimum mark (wish I had looked earlier but i hadn't thought about it and had been dealing with fixing 2 windows that are stuck down)

Point is, I went from max oil to minimum oil in 2 and a half weeks and im wondering if someone knows how much oil is signified by max/min and what the difference would be, or more importantly, how to get that information, seems a little too specific to just google right? I wish I had measured what I put in the tank just now, but too late :(

By the way, I had all my known oil leaks fixed around 8-9 months ago and to my knowledge this oil consumption is 100% linked to the heavy smoke I'm getting about 50% of the time I start up the car, it can range from a little puff at start up to a literal tornado of smoke (usually with a blue tint but not very noticable) I had a friend of mine replace the ccv 6 months ago, he didn't replace any of the hoses around it and I don't think it did much because of that, but it seemed to help

It's been better lately until last night I had to park in a driveway with a very steep incline, and when I started it up it was the most smoke I have ever seen for sure, maybe that could tell someone something

There was a puddle when I pulled out, but I'm almost positive that was the last bit of power steering fluid left in my car body from a reservoir leak I had a few months back that was fixed

(130k miles)

TL:DR, can anyone point me in the direction of somewhere where I can find the measurement to figure out difference between minimum and max oil on dipstick, and how significant is that consumption seem to you

Oil in dipstick

I changed the oil on a 2016 jeep renegade the other day using royal purple synthetic, a new k&n filter, and some lukas oil stabilizer. The car holds about 5.5 qt and i put roughly 4.5qt oil and 1qt stabilizer like it recommends (20%).

I checked the oil level after running it and its splattered all over the dipstick even after wiping it and retrying to dip it multiple times. Ive tried measuring it when cold and when hot about 4 times. Each time the oil level was unreadable and splattered. I figured i put too much oil so i drain roughly a qt and the level kinda looks to be in the middle of the gauge but theres still splatter everywhere.

Is this splatter an issue? Could it be caused by the lukas stabilizer getting stuck in the dipstick. Im done this exact oil change multiple times and have never gotten this result. Im concerned that there is way to much oil because the oil is way over the bump in the dipstick.

(Fyi the dipstick has a hatched gauge about 3 inches from the bottom tip, then about an 1/2in above the gauge there is a bump. The oil goes like 6in past the bump)

Edit:

I should clarify, i check it multiple times throughout a couple days

  1. Right after changing the oil, i ran it for a minute or two. Turn it off and check it

  2. I let it sit for a hour after changing the oil and check it while it was off

  3. The next day i drove an hour, then i checked it about 10mins after turning off the car

  4. I checked it in the morning the next when it was cold.

  5. I checked it after driving 30mins.

I dumped about a qt of oil out of it at this point

  1. I checked right after dumping the oil

  2. I checked it again this morning after sitting all night

Every time was splattered. Time 6 and 7 looked like the line was within the hatched gauge kinda, it was not a solid line.

Just bought a Miata, confused about the dipstick reading (way over full?)

We just bought our first Na Miata '92

We know it's leaking oil, so we were expecting a low reading, but the stick seems to indicate it's over full. The reading was taken in a completely cold engine, but it was sitting in a slightly slanted surface. The pressure gauge on the dash reads 2 when idle, and 4 when under load. How would you guys interpret this ? Should we try a reading on a flatter surface?

Pic of the dip reading: pic 1
