Since the dipstick tube is a slide in fit, you will need to drop the oil pan to work the rest of the part out.
1) drain the oil
2) remove the bolts holding the oil pan (once they are all out, you might need to tap the pan to get it to release from the block-my brother's 97 camry was like this)
3) Remove the pan and look up for the dipstick tube end, spray it good with some WD-40, let it sit for a few minutes. The photo shows some pretty bad corrosion in your case.
4) with a set of channel lock pliers, begin to work the tube out. Take your time, you will be pushing out, not trying to pull the piece through.
5) once it is out, clean the edges of the dipstick tube opening.
6) Install new dipstick tube. ensure you have a good fit around the tube. otherwise, the crankcase pressure will squirt oil through.
7) Scrape off the old gasket from the oil pan and the face of the bottom of the engine.
8) lay the new gasket on the oil pan and begin to bolt it back on. Get the bolts in finger tight, then alternate torquing them down to ensure an even seal.
9) change oil filter and fill with new oil

SOURCE: oil dip stick

Had the same problem last year - the plastic handle broke off and the top of the remaining plastic was visible down the tube but was stuck solid. Finally used an easy-out to get it out. Drilled a small hole into the plastic and then threaded a thin easy-out bit into the hole and it held enough for me to pull the dipstick out. Stupid design, a plastic handle on a metal dipstick!

Here in Canada the Intrepid is badged as a Chrysler. Sounds a bit dodgey to me :-)

SOURCE: oil dipstick tube

On my girlfriend's 93 (same generation), it's right in front, between the two middle exhaust manifold runners. You should see a hole in the heat shield, and the dipstick handle is right there. If the dipstick is missing, look through that hole with a flashlight and you'll see the tube there.

SOURCE: 1997 chev 1500 with 350 vortec milky oil in dipstick tube

Sorry to say its your head gaskets. Probably from the overheating it wore out the gaskets. that milky stuff is your coolant mixing with your oil. Good luck. Suggest you take it to a pro. the gaskets are easy to change, it's everything else in the way to get to them that requires special tools and experience. Let me know how it goes. I have the same thing with my truck but not real bad. If your truck is running smooth and doesn't feel like its missing, or when your start it no puff of white smoke comes out your exhaust it's not that big of problem. if these are happening then i would get a quote.

How much does it cost to put an oil dipstick tube that has come out back into the block?


These tubes normally don't come out easily. They are usually held in place with a small bracket welded to the tube and held in place with a bolt. Some are press fit to some degree. You should be able to see a small O ring on the base of the dipstick tube if it is not broken off in the block. Is there any sign of the dipstick tube showing a rusted off bracket used to hold it? If the tube is not broken off in the block, the labor charge should not be more than half an hour

Where is the pressure switch located on a 1995 V6 Toyota Camry


You would probably mean the oil pressure (or 'sender') unit. On the 1MZ alloy block V6 it is located on the front of the engine under the timing belt cover at about the level of the oil filter, below the alternator mounting. See here p140 (you don't need to do the large amount of disassembly shown in the diagram).

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg2.pdf

On the older 3VZ iron block engine it is on the outside of the block right next to the oil filter, near where the dipstick tube goes down.

My oil dipstick broke off. Can you tell me the easiest way to retrieve the stick to replace with new


Many dipstick holders are bolted to the engine...removing this bolt and the dipstick tube should also retrieve the dipstick...you may need a new tube, as well as dipstick...Hope this helps.

Do Not do that!! Anything foreign in the sump is a really bad idea.It way make its way to the oil pickup screen and partially block the flow of oil.This has the potential to damage your engine. At the bottom of the dipstick tube is usually a small bolt that attaches the tube to the side of the engine.I would remove this and see if I can fish it out then.Failing this you will have to drop the oil pan and get it that way.I know this may seem like a trivial thing but the potential is there to do a lot of damage.
If bits of plastic get past the screen and get into your engine any cost to get the stick out will seem very minor. good luck

Transmission is slipping. Can't find a dipstick to check the fluid level. Can the transmission fluid be topped up?


Hello! The transmission dipstick is about a foot to the right of the oil dipstick, as you're looking at the front of the engine compartment...Fluid is added through the dipstick tube...

generally camrys are automatic and if so the fluid goes right into where the dipstick came out of. be sure to add it slowly so it does not come up the dipstick and flood out and be careful not to overfill it.
