Wrong dipstick = low oil level, HELP!!!
I've posted 2 threads in the 94 - 98 forum. One under General Discussion and one under motor problems. I think I may have found the cause to alot of my problems with my loss of power. I'm not getting any responses and I need someone who knows to check them out. Please, Help!
I found a TSB on 94 and early 95s having the wrong oil dipstick. So when it indicates Full, it is actually 2 quarts low. The dipstick with #1820068C1 stamped on it is the wrong one, #1824405C1 is the correct one, mine has #1826628C1 stamped in it, right or wrong? That's what I am trying to find out.
I called the local Ford Dealer (parts dept.) and had him look up these numbers and he said "yep, that's the one for a 95", (for all three numbers), then I asked him if Ford used different dipsticks for different years and he said no, they all use the same one. (idiot) I hung up on him.
So now I'm really not sure. If anyone knows where to find out what application my dipstick is for, please let me know.
I'm thinking about just draining the oil and seeing how much comes out. That's probably the best idea.
Anybody got any ideas?
