Oil level check on 3.0 V6 diesel with full digital display

Post by yoda » Thu Oct 06, 2016 8:13 pm

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!
