      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi Guys, I have a 2005 1.8L Petrol Zetec Ford Mondeo Hatchback. I was checking the oil earlier, what I noticed was that the dipstick was different to what I had on a 2002 Ford Mondeo 2.0L Executive. The the 2002 model the dipstick was thin and flat, then in the 2005 model, the dipstick is like a braided shaft. My query is, can anyone tell me the length of the dipstick of the 2005 1.8L dipstick or are they all of the same length. I ask this because, I have this new mondeo for a bout a week today. I just want to make sure that the correct dipstick is in the car and it is of the right length, as when I use the current one, it is not showing me the oil level, it is as if it is too short. I am hoping that I just need to top up the oil again. I hope someone can help me here.
