2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Sunken Dipstick

April 02, 2011


On a whim, I popped our 2011 Odyssey's hood this week just to see how easy it would be to check the oil. And like on other Hondas, the basic layperson service points are all right in front (good). But the dipstick is quite a reach down into the engine compartment (not good)

I did, however, go ahead and check the oil (level was fine), and in doing so, found that the Odyssey's dipstick is more robust than some others and at least easy to reinsert back down into the tube. [The other dipstick (yellow) visible in the background is for the transmission fluid.]
