    Anyone here know how to measure engine oil and how much it should be at?
    Coz, today morning, I checked oil gauge (dipstick), and the oil only covered half of the tip.

    I am a little worried right now as the engine oil was topped up only last month when I went to get the glow plugs replaced. Have run about 2K kms since then and today morning when I checked it was at the above mentioned level.

    Is it normal (I'm hoping it is normal) and can I continue to drive without any issues, as I have another 5K kms for the next service at 75K Kms.

    Or would it be a better idea to take it to FASS and ask them for an oil change and monitor the level from there till the next service?

    Any clues anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    i would advise you to maintain a 10k service interval for oil chnage after 50k run just to be sure everything is fine.

    Thanks bibin. I plan to go for an oil & filter change this weekend. Vecto motors turned me down, so have to look for other options though!
