All engine faults/repairs/maintenance Dipstick lengths

The measurements are from the shoulder on the handle that butts up against the dipstick tube when fully inserted

Total length of dipstick = 387mm

Length to centre of upper fill notch = 331mm

Length to centre of lower fill notch = 359mm

The dipstick has two twists in it, one above the notches and one below. I assume this is to prevent the oil witness smudging on the dipstick tube when it is removed
