Hi

I been messuring my oil regularly as I have a drinker! Has be tested by Citroen and said it’s ok.

I leave it for a few hours on level ground before I test but I’m still finding it hard to read the font side of the dipstick is showing about 6-7 out of 15 lines but the back is showing fully covered in oil! I’m guessing this is where I have taken and put it back in anyone else have this issue and what do you go by?

Also anyone know the measurement between max and min?

Hi Savii

Just read the level from the front and ignore the mess on the back. The dipstick tube has quite a few bends in it which leaves oil on the back but leaves the front correct.

No, sorry. I don't see it in the manual either.
