Do Not Sell My Personal Information



Recommended Posts

I have a 1.4tdci and my dipstick has a kind of spiral in it midway up which leads me to think it's not the right one for my car. 

Upon looking for a replacement on line all I can find is the petrol models... Can someone please tell me if the diesel and petrol fusions share the same dipstick? 

Many thanks

Below if a small email chat I had with ford parts.....

Did anyone else know about this??


Hi Joe
The Dipsticks were snapping due to the shape and design and dropping into the Sump
The original Dipstick is not available now
All 3 items need to be replaced unfortunately
Best regards

Hi Trevor,
Wow I wasn't expecting to have to replace the tubes as well. 
Please can I ask why they were modified? And what would happen if I just got only the dipstick and not the tubes?
