1997 850se. My dipstick doesn't show a reading even though there is oil in the engine, weird or what?
Any suggestions?

Are you sure the car has the proper dipstick?
Are you sure you have enough oil in there?

Our 850's hold a huge amount of oil, normally 5-5.3 litres. The dipstick doesn't show any oil if you have something like 3.5 litres or less. So, if your dipstick shows nothing you add one liter and check again.
