Engine oil measurement stopping at 15-17%

Hi

I have been having this issue for a while but finally decided to do something about it.
A bit of research revealed that the problem most likely is this valve (which I can now confirm): Hydraulic valve 11417622768

1: Disconnect battery
2: Remove undertray
3: Remove 3pc screws for waterpump
4: Disconnect waterpump and valve
5: Remove 1pc screw for valve
6: Turn valve 90 CCW (then you can get a finger behind it) and remove
7: Exercise valve/check function with 12v
8: Reinstall and see if it now works

Update
I found that the oil has to be between 65 and 100 degreeC for my car to measure it. Below the measurement will not start and above it stops at 15-17%. Nothing wrong with the mechanics probably.

Where did you find that oil measurement above 100 degrees C will stop at 15%-17% ?!?
Where did you find this information? From a BMW dealer or service or there is some documentation that you found ?
Thanks

maybe if everybody can try that, mesure oil level at 120 degrees C , my car does the same thing, it will stop between 15-17% above 100 degrees C.

Tested it myself. Would be cool if you tested it too! 100C = 212F.
