I can't work out how to check the engine oil level on my 3.0 V6 diesel F-Pace. There is no dipstick under the bonnet, just a cap over the dipstick tube (unless I am missing something). Yet the instructions for the electronic level indication only seem to refer to the part analogue dash. I have referred to the manual but am none the wiser. Any help/advice would be much appreciated.

The Fpace doesn't have a dip stick. To check oil level the engine has to be cold or left for at least 10 mins after running switched off.

Switch on the car but do not start the engine so do not put your foot on the brake when pressing the button.

Select (in the info panel) the oil level.

Then it will display.

Thanks Jagfpacejk, the only trouble is that I have a full TFT display and I haven't found an option in the info panel for oil level. Does the check option only appear when the engine isn't running?

Yes engine must not be running as it will not show the engine info page.

Give me a dipstick any day, a direct reading of oil level is better and more reliable than an electronic one. I can't believe the cost of supplying a dipstick would be prohibitive and unless I am very much mistaken, you have to open the bonnet to top up with oil!

Isn't automated oil top up going to be a future ICTP function?

Ducks and runs out of range :D

If you need to add oil I would be asking and wondering where it is going.

That's as said what services are for, replacing and adding fresh oil.

It does have engine data.

Power up the car but don't start the engine, press the start button but do not put your foot on the brake pedal.

Once the car has powered up press the menu button on the steering wheel and scroll through until you find the vehicle information option, check tyre pressures, oil level, etc.

If the engine is running you will not see the vehicle information option. If the engine has not been off for more than 10 minutes you will not get an oil reading.

This is all in the handbook and a search of this forum would have provided the answer.
