About Oil Dipsticks
The BMW oil dipstick is a long rod/tube like apparatus used to measure the oil levels in the internal combustion engine.
The oil dipstick is located beneath the bonnet, contained in the dipstick tube. Usually it has a brightly coloured yellow or orange top to make it easy to find.
It is advisable to check the oil levels weekly and keep oil levels regularly topped up. Before putting the dipstick back in the tube to check the level of oil, the dipstick should be cleaned with a cloth to remove any oil. Oil levels are checked by lowering the dipstick into the dipstick tube then pulling it out to check the oil level mark. Dipsticks usually have either holes or lines at the bottom of the dipstick which are used to indicate oil levels. The oil should register somewhere between the top and bottom lines on the dipstick. If the oil levels are close to the bottom line this means the oil need adding to. It is advisable to keep the engine oil always well topped up to enable the engine to run at top performance and to avoid damage to engine components.
The oil dipstick can be easily damaged when removing other components and often needs to be replaced due a broken oil dipstick that is stuck in the dipstick tube. The BMW oil dipstick is the ideal replacement part for the make and model of your vehicle.
- Electric cars might be all the rage now, but BMW built their first one in 1972 and called it the BMW 1602e. It didn't quite make it to market though, thanks to the fact that it could only hold a twenty-minute charge.
- Think you know what BMW is an acronym of? If you answered Broke My Wallet, you’re definitely wrong. It really stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke (which is Bavarian Motor Works in English).
- That distinctive BMW car engine sound that new owners fall in love with might not be real. The BMW M5 has such a quiet engine that they had to install fake engine noises to keep drivers happy!
- The BMW M1 has a classic look, so it's no surprise that its designer also came up with some other amazing car designs. Giorgetto Giugiaro is also responsible for the DeLorean, the Beretta U22 Neos handgun, and the Nikon D4 camera! Although, he also designed the Yugo, commonly called the worst car that's ever been made.
- The Cold War affected BMW sales so significantly that the company was nearly bought out by their arch-rivals Mercedes in 1959. A silent investor saved the company, but the rivalry between BMW and Mercedes Benz is ongoing.
