Dipstick reading incorrectly?
2000 i6 5spd 175k. I'll start out with this, a few months ago the dipstick crack in the tube. I went to a parts store and they told me they didn't have one in stock, however a WJ dipstick and tube would work just the same. So I went to the junkyard and pulled a dipstick and tube off a '03 WJ 4.0
Today my jeep was running ROUGH, and regardless of giving it gas, it acted like it wanted to stall. Considering how loud the motor sounded, I figured maybe I was low on oil. (I had normal oil pressure and no CEL).
I pulled the dipstick and wiped it, it said it was full. I figured I'd had a quarter of oil, So id add it regardless. I could literally hear the oil running down into the block. I started it back up, no near stalling issues / no loud motor. Added a second quarter. Jeep was running normal again. Dip stick still read exactly the same after adding 2 quarts.
What the hell gives ? Is a WJ dipstick and tube a different size? Any clues ??!
