Hi There 

I have just joined as I have boughta T25 panel van 1990 with a 1Y 1.9 deisel engine.

My first quiery is regarding checking the level of the engine oil. The dipstick isnt registering any oil even after adding a litre. Could this be because the engine is tilted at 45 degrees and therefore the original dipstick is effectively redundant and as such will need modified?

Hi ,

If it still has it's own dipstick then yes,you will need to alter/change it to one from an AAZ.Best to drain the oil and refill with correct volume,then mod or change the dipstick to give you an accurate reading.

Hi Phil,

AAz is the code for the 1.6 diesel ,normally found in the T25.A lot of the guys that fit the 1y as a replacement strip the sump off,change the dipstick tube over from the AAz and fit a baffle plate before refitting the sump.The baffle saves oil starvation on hills or heavy braking as it sloshes about.

I use that engine in mines - the converted dipstick should be on the right hand side of the block as you look in the engine bay - don't think the original position for the dipstick on the 1Y would work cos you would probably lose oil.
Best to drain all you oil and change filter - measure new oil in and see where it comes to on your dipstick.
