4KS Oil dipstick
With all of the oil/filter/dipstick level questions going on...
My 87 4KS has a loose dipstick. It is splined (vertically) so that it
slides into the crankcase. It's kinda loose in its mount, but will not
fall out. Is this a problem? Oil pressures are fine, and there is no
oil usage in about 3k miles. No leaks either.
Some people have remarked about some Audi's having the wrong dipstick
intalled in their engines. How would I know if it is the "correct" one
BTW, I still have the engine from my '84 4KS parts car, and will see if
the lengths are the same. If so, I would think that a snug stick would
be better than a loose one. Comments??
