Oil dipstick for automobile

Spare: Oil level dipstick original

Information - Oil dipstick

The motor oil is very important for any car engine. On its way to the engine, the oil covers all the elements with a thin coating so the engine can work at its normal condition. We can say that the absence of oil in the car is comparable with the absence of fuel. A huge range of fuel oil is caused by structural features of automobile engines, and also depends on the operating conditions of each vehicle. Every driver knows what kind of oil is suitable for his car, and regards the choice very seriously.

The engine management systems today cannot operate without oil level sensor, whose task is to alert the driver that the engine oil level is very low. Apart from that, the oil level indicator notifies the driver of the deficiency of oil before driving off, meaning before starting the engine. By the way, in older cars there is a plug instead of the indicator that can be easily replaced with an oil level sensor. The operating concept of the oil-level indicator is based on determining the level of resistance to voltage. Considering the fact that the sensor is immersed in liquid, it gives at the output more impedance than the dry sensor.

The voltage is recorded and transmitted to the controller, whose task is to light the indicator when the oil level is very low. Do not confuse this indicator with the oil pressure sensor, their functions are quite different. The oil pressure sensor monitors also the quality of oil. You are certainly free to replace the faulty oil level indicator, but it will be better done by experts at a repair shop.

This work is not so expensive, and the driver does not always have all the necessary tools to replace parts. It is better to save on the purchase of the spare parts, without giving up on their quality. The procedure is quite simple - order the required spare part in our online store where you can buy not only sensors, but also flanges, springs, or headlights.

What you need to know about oil dipstick: lifetime limits, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

The oil dipstick has no certain service lifetime. Replacement is usually performed in case of mechanical damage of the part, for example, because of careless removal during oil level check.

Defectiveness of the oil dipstick is easily found out: you should take the part out and inspect it visually. The component handle can be damaged as well as its rod.

If the component handle is out of order, you should remove the oil dipstick with the help of the suitable tool. Then you can set a new component into the oil dipstick tube. But if a part of the rod is broken off, it is better to address to a service station. Specialists will remove the pan with the help of the lifting platform and then they will remove an oil dipstick piece. This must be done in order to avoid its getting into the oil pump. A new component can be installed after this.
