Anything over the maximum mark can cause problems eventually, thats why its called "maximum" !! Drain a drop out to be sure.How much is too much? My car is parked on a very slight slope and the oil is above the dipsick by 5mm, even on a flat it would be over. How much is too excessive before it causes problems??
Yep, mine looks completely different to yours as it has no written markings on it at all. Thanks for looking and shall see about letting some excess oil out asap. I will go with the top line of the hatched markings as the max line.OK, my OH yellow palstic one has a hatched area, as ashy said.
Mine is metal (with yellow "handle") with a plastic blob on the end. The top hole in the dipstick (or dimple) says MAX ABOVE it
I took a pic but my screen doesnt work on my camera due to dropping it downa a toilet last night, so I missed off the max bit but you can see the min bit:lol:
Its holes rather than dimples, so it loks like we may have differnet sticks perhaps
