Hello, Well the smart arse answer is, I don’t know why you don’t have a dipstick perhaps you’ve lost it? But the more helpful reply is that the hole for the dipstick is located on the right hand side of the engine in front of the starter motor and behind the oil filter.  It’s literally, just a hole about 7mm diameter. If the dipstick is missing then there’s nothing to stop dirt falling into the engine.

Just had a thought. If you dont have a dipstick, maybe you were putting to much oil in and that’s why the engine smoked badly?
