If this is the V8, you need to make sure you have the correct dipstick (part # ends in “D” rather than “C”). The incorrect one was installed on many from the factory.
Yes Bilko,about the only option - Also it is 1 litre between low and high - so if adding go 500ml per top up , wait and re check.You need to be careful if you have added 2 litres of oil without knowing what the actual level was, too much oil can blow seals and break emission control systems.
I would suggest you drain the oil and measure how much comes out. Then refill based on the recommended capacity for your engine, if you are not swapping the filter the recommended fill capacity will be over by about a pint but that shouldn't be an issue....and check you have the correct dipstick.
I have the 3.0 litre diesel. Oil consumption isn't the problem, it's the dipstick reading that's the problem.What engine do you have and how many miles are on the clock? the V6 and V8s don't typically use much oil even at higher milages....unless you have an obvious leak. The 3.0 diesels can use some oil when new but usually, this stops after a few thousand miles.
Also a GM thing as well - my two GM vehicles have it:No low oil level light, thats an Audi/VW thing. They make quite a few engines notorious for burning oil and need to warn drivers, otherwise warranty claims go through the roof. .
I AGREE! Reading the oil level in my 2015 WK2 EcoDiesel is the more difficult than any other vehicle I have owned over the last 45 years.I have the 3.0 litre diesel. Oil consumption isn't the problem, it's the dipstick reading that's the problem.
I can see that happening, that's a great point.I find on my V8 that if I let it sit for about 20 minutes after I shut it off, I can pull the dipstick out and get a good reading (shows the same on both sides of the dipstick, with no gaps). If I wipe it off and re-insert it, it is difficult to get a reading due to the oil that is now on the walls of the dipstick tube.
