Hey Guys I picked up a 2001 S3 the other yesterday. Today I dipped it for oil just to make sure. So I removed the dipstick whipped it and re dipped this time on removal there was part of the orange plastic on the end of the dipstick where it had broken off. I am now worried more of it has come loose and fallen into the the bottom of the engine.
So what I am wondering is can bits in the sumps get up into the engine and cause damage?
