My Nissan Sentra is leaking motor oil. It comes out of the valves gasket. What should I do? Is it costly?. Guarantee is expired. sixmorans


Hi, You had fill too much oil on your sentra. Nissan Sentra use, less oil compare to other brands car with same CC . Never fill the oil that reach max mark of oil dip stick. Please replace your valve cover gasket ( my sentra has P/N: 13270-4m700, your sentra may has different P/N). You can do it yourself. It is only need about 20 minutes to complete.

Regards, vote please, Jay

Dip stick for the oil broke off and is stuck inside


SOMETIMES A SMALL POWERFUL MAGNET CAN BE USED TO EXTRACT THE STICK BUT REMOVAL OF THE OIL PAN IS ONE METHOD THAT ASSURES ALL REMNANTS OF THE DIPSTICK ARE REMOVED FROM THE OIL PAN. TRY FISHING THROUGH THE TUBE BEFORE RESORTING TO PULLING THE PAN. YOUR IMAGINATION IS A POWERFUL TOOL. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA.

How can I remove a lodged oil dip stick? Top part of grip has broken off. Someone tried to remove it but lodged it in further down.


Needle nose plyers.
If those wont reach in far enough - you might have to remove the dipstick tube..

Oil dip stick broke off about 1 inch in shaft


You have to remove the oil dipstick tube.  Most are just pushed into the engine block with a o ring seal.  With some effort you should be able to pull it directly out.  Have you tried a bent coat hanger with a barbed end?
The procedure is easy the acessability may be the hard part.

If you have a screw driver with a magnetic tip, that might do it. SOme auto parts store carry a small magnet on a flexible shaft. Not sure if they wouold be too wide but worth a shot.
