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.
