Another possible problem! Wrong Dipstick?
I found a post on andersonimprovements.com/hobbies/truck/oildipstickcorrection.html that references TSB 95-5-19 about 1994 and early 95 PowerStrokes having the wrong oil dipstick.
It states that Pt# 1820068C1 (as stamped on the dipstick) is the wrong one. This dipstick would show the oil level as full when it actually is 2 quarts low.
They recommend either making a new mark on the dipstick and adding 2 quarts of oil or replacing the dipstick with the correct one, (Pt.# 1824405C1) and adding 2 quarts of oil to bring it to the proper level.
It states this could cause a host of problems such as loss of power, hesitation, stumble, rough idle, stalling plus more.
I checked my dipstick and it is stamped with Pt.# 1826628C1, does anyone know if mine is correct for a 95 or should I contact a dealer to find out?
