flat blade sticks,
or damaged dip tube.
in the auto parts store or in the tool section in a hardware store there is a long metal spring looking tool that has metal fingers that extend out when pushing down on the button and grab and retract when button is released the tool is about 24 inches long most times it has a red T handle. if that will fit down the dip stick oil tube it should garb and hold the dip stick enough to remove it. next time when attaching an object back to the handle if it is metal clean / dry and try some JB weld pull test for rigidness and good contact.
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.
