I just came back from the 1 year service. Does anyone have a picture of what the oil level indicator should read? I'm guessing the minimum line is on the left. Anyway, mine is reading 3/4s between the two lines.
Just got mine back from the dealer for the 10k mile service (which I had done at 4K) and the oil indicator shows exactly at the max line on the right.I just came back from the 1 year service. Does anyone have a picture of what the oil level indicator should read? I'm guessing the minimum line is on the left. Anyway, mine is reading 3/4s between the two lines.
Mine looks like this. Unfortunately my dealer is Fiat, Chrysler, Alfa. They are opening a Maserati, Alfa dealership in the near future.I had my 2.0L Giulia's first year service recently at my new dealer (Seattle Ferrari/Naserati/Alfa Romeo). Before I had the 6 bar oil level indicator which was very accurate IMO at 8.5 ounces per bar. Those who couldn't figure when the bar was down two bars meant about 17 ounces down wanted a dip stock. I kept mine at the 5-6 bar level.
After the software update, I now have the new style left to right oil line see photo below. I did not have the dealer use the Mopar oil because I could not get any confirmation from ARC that this Mopar oil specifically met the Fiat spec 9.555.35-GS1. The service/parts folks both said I was welcome to bring my own oil. I brought my own oil, 5 qts of Pennzoil Platinum Euro LX 0W-30, plus a partial bottle from which which I had used 3 ounces before for a slight top up. As I requested, they returned to me the 5 empty bottles plus the partially full 6th bottle. The partially full bottle was down about 14.5 ounces from the amount I brought in the 6th bottle. That means they added a total of approx 5.45 qts of oil. I asked them to be sure it was not overfilled as I always do. That level IMO is perfect. A hair less than full. Measuring on my screen the top (right vertical mark) to bottom (left vertical mark) mark on the new line, the oil is equal to about the 85% level on this line, again perfect.
I know I got a little detailed here but wanted to point out that although there are no level marks on this new scale, that very close to the far right is ideal for me. If in the future I see the oil line go down to about the half mark then I'll top off with 2-4 ounces and see how that raises the line, preferably at the 3/4 - 7/8. Is everyone happy now?
Interesting point Pappa Gallo. Wondering why it updates after an on/off ignition cycle - that makes topping it up a bit time -consuming perhaps? At this point, I haven't needed any top up oil yet, with about 2,500 miles on the car and it still has all the bars illuminated.I believe you have to follow the instructions of idling the car for 5 minutes - i topped up 200mls and idled for 5 minutes and it didnt change - i then switched it off and back on again, and it updated after ignition
i dont think driving it updates it
the other thing is that bar only represents about 1 litre of the total oil in the sump - if you are topping up only add 100mls at a time as overfilling can cause problems*
