    Default oil level........

    does anyone else have a problem with reading the oil level?

    everytime i withdraw the dipstick it always seems to drag the oil up so i can never get a proper reading...

    am i right or is it because theres not enough in?

    this is a common problem, with a certain type of dipstick they used on the vectra. don't know if its the same on all engine types but on my 2.0DTi its almost impossible to get an accurate reading.
