The dipstick receptacle(plastic) broke off. How do we go about replacing and or ordering new parts? Is this common since it's plastic and are there metal ones available for replacement?

01 Lincoln nativagator oil tube dipstick broke off an don't know where to find the other part that's still on the engine an what I need to get it replaced an how soon?

The part that broke off might be long enough to still be in the tube and you can get it out by removing the tube out of the block should be just pressed in and can be pulled out, check to see if it has a bolt holding it. If the part that broke off is short and fell into the oil pan don't worry about it just put in a new dipstick

I have a Ford F350 Lariat Super Duty Diesel with the 6.0 engine. wha would cause the oil pressure to drop complete when I come to a stop but run normal when going down the road?

Your oil is under pressure as it is circulated through the engine, and at low RPM there is less pressure pumping the oil around. With the broken dipstick, I presume there is an oil-pressure leak and at normal operating speed there is enough capacity to maintain proper pressure, but the leak is more than the engine can overcome at low speed. I would suggest replacing the broken dipstick.

I don't know the name but is the plastic housing on the oil dipstick that I need

I don't think you can get just the plastic housing on the dipstick. You'll have better luck just ordering a new dipstick
