    HI, I know I can check engine oil level at the dashboard, but is there an oil dipstick on this engine. I have found one dipstick in the engine bsy at the back offside, it has a sort of security clip locking it.

    I would like to check if the dealer has changed the oil before I collected the car. Peter

    The Dipstick you have found with the Tamper proof cap is for the Auto box. I can't help you with regards to the location of your oil dipstick.

    Welcome btw.

    I dont think that there is an oil dipstick in a 203. It is all engine management controlled. :eek:

    On my w203 220 CDI the oil level is indeed on the dash display but there is also an indicator on the side of the engine cover.

    Ok i may be wrong here and if so i'm sure i'll be corrected but i always thought that the item highlighted was a oil level "back up"

    That's an indicator for the air filter.......it measures the amount of restriction in % due to blockage.
