Get a new dip stick tube first. Then get a drill bit the same size as the diameter of the tube not larger. Break off the tube as close to the engine block as possible. Use the drill bit with a low rpm drill motor to carefully drill out the old tube that is left. You will want to drop the oil pan first so the metal shavings drop to the ground instead on into the engine. After the old tube has been drilled out. tap the new one into the engine block with a rubber hammer. Put the pan back on, fill with oil and you're done.
ITS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE BEHIND THE A/C COMPESSOR AND BELOW THE VALVE COVER.. LOOKING AT THE MOTOR WITH HOOD UP IT WILL BE ON THE LEFT SIDE IT SHOULD STAND UP PRETTY TALL. IF YOU ARE WANTING TO REMOVE THE WHOLE DIP STICK TUBE. ITS ATTACHED TO THE VALVE COVER BY 1 BOLT.. TO REMOVE ENTIRE DIP STICK TUBE WHICH GOES DOWN INTO THE OIL PAN.. IT SHOULD HAVE A YELLOW RING FOR DIPSTICK.
The dip stick tube is pressed into the engine block. Put a bolt into the top of the tube so that the body of the bolt goes into the tube and the bolt head rests on the tube (so it does not fall down the tube). Use a wrench (such as a Vise grip) to hold onto the tube at the bolt and gently work it back and forth, being sure not to deform the tube. Remove the tube and old dip stick. Replace the tube by forcing it back into the eng. block. Replace the dip stick - done :)! Some dip stick tubes have a gasket at the engine - others just **** up to a shoulder that is built into the tube. Let me know if this works. Thanks.
The 5.0L engine comes with a 5 quart oil pan. I have a 95 mustang and I have a 7 quart oil pan installed on it. If there was a previous owner that has done any work to your car be aware of that. It wasn't until 96 that mustangs came stock with a 6 quart oil pan on the 4.6L engine. I would put 5 quarts in with out worry. start the engine for a bit, shut it back off and check the oil again before taking it out on the road. Do not only put 3 quarts in it and feel safe with it.
I'm not an expert on Volkswagens, but on all the cars I've ever owned, transmission fluid was added directly down the tube that houses the transmission fluid dip stick. Remove the dip stick and use a funnel with a narrow opening. I hope this helps you out.
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.
the dipstick and tube go to the sump it is at the very bottom of the engine block should be a large smooth pan looking thing that covers the bottom of the engine, dont know where you can purchase these things but go to a place that sells car parts and put an order in for the parts with your engine make and model number
