+1000The sticks are horrible, plain and simple.
The dipstick on a 7.3 isn't all that great either. The hatching is very light, at least on the ones I've seen (2 - granted a small sample). The wife's Buick has holes starting at the full level, and is a snap to read. I'm wondering why Ford didn't steal GM's idea. :shrug03Any other dipsticks that are easier to read like the old 7.3L?
Hi radar36,Wow, I thought it was just me but I get frustrated trying to read the dipstick on my 2011 F-350 Powerstroke. I was hoping Ford recognized the issue and would come up with a change.
I too add my vote as to the difficulty of reading the 6.7 dipstick. I added crosshatch marks opposite the factory ones and resorted to reading the dipstick in the morning with one pull cold. It's still not ideal, you should be able to read a dipstick anytime with no difficulty. Don't get me wrong I still really like my truck but the engineers really dropped the ball on the dipstick and tube. It should have been placed in a spot easier to get to for short people. I am 6 ft 3 inches and its not real easy for me.
