Dipstick for 4.8 auto

Post by Pieter B » 05 Jan 2018 06:57

I've ordered a dipstick for my 4.8 from Atlantis Nissan in Centurion. Unfortunatly it will only arrive in a months time. In the mean time I made up a dipstick from dimensions I got from a post on the Forum. I made the dipstick from a piece of plactic fibre tubing. But when I used it, I'm not getting any oil on it. So my first question is: can somebody please confirm the length. My info is that it's 568mm long.

Hi Pieter,

Have you recently bought one?

Do you possibly have the part number?

The dipstick was ordered from Jacques at Atlantis Nissan in Centurion. Part no.11140VC20A. Maybe you should hold of a little until I received mine. Let's check first to see if it's the correct part.
