Definitely not at first, for me. I'd never read that, in any literature anywhere. Just read it by chance about a month or so after I did my first oil change in a thread elsewhere. You'd think that the owner's manual would have relayed that specific information since it's a bit different than the usual oil checking procedure than that for most cars. I understand that the oil change/refill procedure is a bit different, and that the info/procedure is not readily available to the public since the expectation is that dealer service departments tend to do most people's oil changes. But it is very common, and recommended, that the consumer at least know how to check and monitor their oil level, so why this is not described in the owner's manual perplexes and frustrates me.

Since my CRD was a 2008.5 (built in december of 2008), I got a 2009 owners manual. On page 415, "anytime the oil is drained and filled it is very important to wait 15 minutes before starting the engine."

On page 414, it states, " Before checking the oil level, turn the engine off and wiat 15 minutes to allow for the oil to return to the oil pan."

A bit larger with more capacity for filtering but it is much bulkier and harder to work with in the tight space.
What was the actual part number...as I noted on the RACOR site, and others, that there is a right or left letter to their products.

Re: CRD Oil Level Checking ??s

Mine's a 2008 but August 2007 production date. Wish my owner's manual stated that. Racor CCV4500-08 is the model I got. Most folks think the 4500 is overkill and that the 3500 is big enough. It is bulkier and heavier and more difficult to mount. I think the R & L stand for right or left but the intake and exhaust ports on either side are reversible so it really doesn't matter. If you buy the 4500, you also have to buy the separate screw in barbs for the hose. It's takes from 3/4" to 1 1/4" barbs. I have 3/4 on the intake side and 1" on the exhaust side that runs to the turbo. Talk to someone on the phone instead of ordering over the internet. Maybe you can ask a few ??'s and learn a bit more. Talk to another diesel tech and get their opinion before you pull the trigger and they may be able to help with your decision.

Re: CRD Oil Level Checking ??s

hi see my thread in the new members section. I have a WK2 diesel and have found when i take out the dipstick the oil is scraped off in the bend from the sump making it look low when it isn't and I overfilled the engine
