Hi Guys Yes it's me again, the annoying bloke with lots of questions! I Picked my car up last week and before I drove it home I checked the oil level. Bang on maximum. However at low revs the oil light would flicker. I put this down to the oil being stood for 3 years while car was not being used. Today I decided to change the oil and filter. A quick google revealed the 2.0 Pinto engine should have around 3.8 litres of oil inc filter? firstly is this correct? secondly I drained about 2.6 litres out the engine. I have now put in 3.8 litres but the level is about twice as far as the maximum line on the dipstick. So my assumption is the car may have the wrong dipstick? I have attached photos of the dipstick and sump in case anyone can offer me some advice. Thanks in advance Ray
