Mine works from cold. It becomes a pita when you've run the engine, and have to wait for it to decide its ready to give you a level.

I completely agree that its an unfortunate situation that more thought was not given to the process, a startup indication would be ideal, and yes it would also be ideal if it warned you before it blew itself to pieces!

However, I also agree that my wife would never check the oil until it shouted at her. If it had a dipstick, it would never get checked.

With tyre pressure monitoring(TPM) it done automatically on start up, tells you what pressures are set at and a warning with a picture if one or more tyres are low and which ones, for oil which is vital nothing- I rest my case Laughing

There is a tube there, thatโ€™s the one that is leaking on mine but I doubt you could get anything down it as according to the drawing it has some very sharp bends in it, I will investigate further.

It's not something I'd want to risk, these lumps are temperamental enough as is, they're not going to like being poked with a stick. Confused
