Pardon the ideological dipstick, but how many of you are free speech absolutists in this sub?

I am concerned by the lurching of many states towards more restrictive speech laws and I want to see how any of this sub agree that free expression of ideas, and the free ridicule of any of those ideas, regardless of public opinion, is a fundamental right in a democracy.

I think it was the press freedom index that indicated this regression in otherwise democratic nations.

I think socdem people in general, at least that I've heard from, tend to take a more liberal/libertarian approach to social issues.

I'm looking into new skis for my dad. He's an intermediate to advanced skier around 180cm 185lbs. We will most likely be skiing in Ontario and Quebec with trips to some Ikon pass destinations. Would the Ripstick line be a good choice for a hybrid touring setup with a shift or marker type binding. Also in regards to waist waist width- would the 96 be too wide, do I go with the 88? I think that's it . Thanks 😊

New engine, dipstick oil level?

So I have a 351w, stroked to a 393ci, serpentine belt setup, tc w/o dipstick provision, but was drilled for one, and a front sump pan. The pan is a Milodon 30926. The pan is 8qt, and this is a new motor, and an empty oil filter. The FL1A oil filter holds 1qt. So I threw 8 qts in the pan, primed the motor. Should need to add 1qt more to accommodate what filled the oil filter. Which would make a 9qt oil change. But how much oil is lost through all the oil passages, hydraulic lifters, etc. Trying to figure out where to cut my dipstick tube. So along with the 1qt from the oil filter, how much more oil should I add to the pan to account for what was lost in the oil passages and lifters, from there I can just cut my dipstick tube to the proper length that reads full on the dipstick. Thanks!

I always have to attempt like 4 different ways to twist and turn to reinstall the oil dipstick because it always "catches" on something and won't go all the way down. I eventually get it through but jeez, on every other car it goes in smoothly.

When I bought the car the dipstick was all bent, probably from someone who was less patient than me, so I got a new one and I've kept it nice.

So my gf brought up that the SUV was making a weird noise. When she started the car in the driveway I couldn't hear it, but she sent me a video earlier of the sound. I checked around to see if anything was loose on the bottom and eventually checked the oil. I pulled the dipstick out(had oil all the way up the indicator and put it back in. When I pulled it out there was zero oil on the stick at all. I went to undo the oil cap and it was STUCK like it vacuum sealed. Think I should even bother getting the engine looked at or just look for a new vehicle?

Dipstick always smeared with oil

Hello, I am apparently an idiot who can't use a dipstick.

I pull the dipstick out, wipe the oil off, put the dipstick back in, and take it out again. Here's what it looks like. It looks like this when I first take it out too. Seems like it's covered in oil way past the full line, but it's smeared and irregular.

My car has been sitting unused for 3 days and it's on a fairly level surface. I've tried to get an oil reading several times over the past week and it's been like this every time. Different surfaces, different lengths of time sitting, etc. I'm not sure what I could be doing wrong.

I have a Subaru Crosstrek 2014, 126k miles, last oil change on 01Feb2020. Any help is appreciated.

I used to top off engine oil from the location for dipstick!

My car had a slow leak of oil and the mechanic advised during last oil change to keep checking the oil and top it off if it goes low. I've been adding only small amounts from the dip stick place(30 ml ish) and only last week while cleaning tree twigs and stuff I noticed the oil cap. Apparently it was stuck the first time & I needed to add only a small amount of oil, I used dip stick location & since became a habit.

Would if have harm the engine or it goes into the same location?

CEL after checking dipstick while engine running

Hi guys, I normally do not do this, but did out of curiosity thinking it wouldn’t be a problem. After firing up the engine, I went to check the dipstick, and as soon as I pulled it out the engine starting shaking and bogging down almost. I put it back in and everything was fine. Turned off the car, waited a few seconds, turned it back on and I had a check engine light. I turned it off, double checked the oil level with the car off everything is fine. Went for a drive and the CEL did not go away. I will let it sit overnight and maybe the CEL will go away? Has anyone had this happen before? I don’t have a tool to look at codes or anything. Should I be worried??

2006 Outback 2.5i Transmission Dipstick Reading Trouble

Hi,

I have always had difficulty reading the transmission dipstick on my 2006 Outback 2.5i since I bought it. I know i have to check it with the engine hot and idling. I'm going to explain my car's current situation and see if anyone can help me figure out if my aft fluid is too low, too high, or just right.

When I take the tranny pan drain bolt out about 3 quarts of fluid comes out. I know because I dumped it from the catch pan into a gallon milk jug to get an approx. measurement.

When I look at the dipstick one side of the stick only has a bit of oil on the very bottom of the stick. The other side of the stick has oil a good quarter inch above the hot full mark.

What side of the dip stick should I be readingβ€”the side facing the front bumper of the car or the side facing the driver's seat?

Also, does anyone know how much atf should come out of the tranny pan on this 2006 Outback 2.5i engine?

Oil dipstick useless?

I'm not a car guy. I am 95% ignorant about cars. I have a vague sense that cars contain oil, and that too much or too little is bad. I have also been given to believe that one checks the oil level using the oil dipstick.

Question: I have a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. For as long as I can remember, the dipstick has been useless. There are two little dots on it that (I suppose) the oil level is meant to stay between. I pull it out, wipe it off with a napkin, slide it back in and then out again. Every time, the entire thing is coated all the way from top to bottom with oil, making it impossible to gauge the oil level. It doesn't matter if the car is hot or cold, level or tilted, before an oil change or after an oil change: It's always covered with oil all the way up to the little plastic ring you grab it by.

Is that normal?

1999 chevy blazer - light steam coming from oil dipstick when engine is shut off after 10 mile drive.

The engine is rebuilt less than 1000 miles ago, completely redone and super cleaned, looked like a brand new engine going in. With the recommended oil once it was all back together (also a high pressure pump) it had 60psi cold and 20psi at halfway on the temp gauge and 60 psi under load. Changed oil out for 10w40 and it never drops below 40psi and again 60psi under load. Occasional burning oil smell but no noticiable oil loss. No smoke from exaust either. 1 DTC for lean codes in both banks but stays gone for long periods of time so I just clear it and dont worry about it.

Now to today, it had been some weeks since I smelled any burnt oil but I could smell a faint hint of it idling in a drive through. Get home and go to check oil like I do religiously with this truck and it's fine. Notice a slight white steam coming from the dipstick but it stops after a minute or 2 of staring at it. Oil smells like oil no gas and clear as when I put it in. Not milky at all. Do you guys think theres

  1. Security code to enter into website to verify (on box under scratch panel - number nearly rubbed off coz scratch thingy was not really a proper scratchie (looked like silver stuff was normal printer ink))
  2. Then website is nothing, just a page that says the domain name is for sale and info related to that. Basic page no pics or anything.
  3. Can't seem to plug the battery charger into anything, no cable/cords (2 AA looking removable recharge batteries). Looks like it goes straight to wall socket (NEVER seen this connection type before. Tried diff international plugs (nope), no usb etc.
    It cost nearly $200. Only got today, haven't contacted shop.... yet! Wanted to see if info before I do. So guys any info would be great. Would of put pics of it but not sure how.

Quick question regarding the CA18det, should the dipstick housing be "floating" like this or should it be touching the oil pump?

For those of you wanting to run seafoam through the intake, I found a nice vacuum line that runs directly in to the center of the intake runners. The hose attached to the yellow dot. This pic is located about 6 inches up and left of the dipstick.

Help Needed With Dipstick Tub/Coolant Lines on '05 LGT

If anyone could help my I'd really appreciate it...I'm currently putting together a long block EJ25 for my '05 LGT. I was getting the coolant lines on before I get the intake manifold on and I cannot seem to get everything to jive with the dipstick tube. The dipstick tube needs to mount where I'm pointing to here I'm pretty sure but I cannot seem to make that happen. Am I trying to put it in the wrong spot? That is where it was bolted when I bought the motor but thats where the coolant lines were bolted to my old block and I unfortunately didn't take it apart fully myself and the dipstick tube on my old block was already off when I removed the coolant lines to swap over yesterday. I can't move the dipstick tube over anymore than it is here in this pic, just no room, plus it doesn't seem like both tabs will sit on each other to use that same mounting hole. Any help is much appreciated!!

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.
