You are either much braver or much more trusting than I am.No I hadn't checked it myself prior to this but like I mentioned, the oil had been changed 3 different times at 2 dealerships and they didn't mention it.
From the feedback received so far it looks like the wrong dipstick was installed from the factory. I'll order a replacement.
Yes I have found stuff open and undone, I have also added to my toolbox with assortment of wrenches and shop rags.After any kind of service anywhere I open the hood and look around for stuff open undone or left behind. I have been rewarded for my efforts more than a few times.
Yep, for that new cast-iron steering box TSB they left the bolts under-torqued, re-used a bolt that specifically calls for a new bolt to be used (also under-torqued) left my steering fluid reservoir cap laying on the side of the motor too!Yes I have found stuff open and undone, I have also added to my toolbox with assortment of wrenches and shop rags.
@zeebo56thats what I have been doing but maybe I should be checking the dipstick also :o
