The one in your CAR!!! Jeez. :D

Seriously, I forgot to post this at the 500 mile oil change and today I did the 1,000 mile oil change and remembered to ask about this.

My dipstick is all twisted up? Are yours?

The oil dipstick on my car is a "corkscrew" shape and does not reseat without turning. I've seen twists at the very end of most oil dipsticks, but not all the way up, like the one on my GTO. Have you noticed that when it's seated the ring is always perpendicular to the fuel rail cover?

Yeah, seating it takes that funny quater twist...O-ring? Once seated, it spins freely.... :drink: :drink: :drink:

My dip stick has about Three twist at the very top. It seals with an "O" ring snug. I don't see a problem. 864mi. 500mi oil change to Mobil 1. Still in the safe zone.. COS

Mine is twisted too and it seems rather flimsy for such a nice car....

Mine is twisted. It goes right in no problems, however, the twisting isn't an even twisting the entire way down. Almost as if it's been randomly twisted.

Be thankful our LS1's are a 1 piece unit. F-Body's have a two piece unit riveted together about halfway down the length.

Hey - I just noticed, my wheels are round! Get that, round! Are they supposed to be that way?


Sorry to pile on - just thought it was funny.
