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.

The oil dip stick handle was broken off the oil stick by a service technician and the remaining plastic and stick are lodged down inside the extension tube by about 1/2" from the top. Do you have any...

One way is to remove the tube from the engine block or the other way is to use a coat hanger and heat the end of the hanger red and then slide into the tube as so it can melt into the plastic try not to wiggle hanger and allow to cool then try to pull out, this may need to be done a few times to remove the dip stick, note dont push down hard as to not push the stick in further, hope this helps.

Oil dip stick handle for Ford Focus ZX3 broke off. Rest of the dip stick still in the tube. How do I retrieve the remaining portion of the oil pan dip stick?

Drill small hole in what's left inside the tube - insert bolt extractor - pull out dip stick. Material is relatively soft so drilling is easy. Buy new dip stick.

Can i put a 1994 acura integra ls trans to replace a 1989 acura i

I don't think this would be possible wihtout some hassles.

The engine type build changed twice between the 89 and the 94 series integra.

I would suggest you speak to Honda specialised mechanic before you purchase the 94 tranny.

Also check out the Honda forums as they ahve guys who have done some handy things with the ol integra

Any trick to getting the oil fliter off? Is there

The best tool i have ever used are Jaw Pliers. About $10 form your local hardware store.

They get a really good grip and can get any oil filter i have tried off.

If you are having heaps of trouble shifting it even with the jaw pliers you may need to break the seal of the filter to remove it.

The best way to do this is to get a screw driver and a hammer and punch a hole into the oil filter while it is attached (make sure you do it away from the base and close to the edge so that you don't damage the actual pipe coming out of the engine)

Also be careful when you do this as oil is most likely going to come out of the hole and all over you.

Once the hole is in and the oil drained stick the jaw pliers back ona nd you will be able to get it off straight away.

Good luck

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.
