You use a quirk screw type tool and twist in and pull it out then replace it.

SOURCE: crank sensor broke

no you can not just push it through!!!

it will not just fall into the oil. it will hit against the crankshaft and stop. you must remove the oil pan and pry between to crank and the engine block and force it out of he block.

they usually get baked in by the oil on the o-ring seal

SOURCE: broke dipstick

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.

SOURCE: Explorer Dipstick Tube Broke

There is a bracket that holds the tube to the block. There is no clips or retainers that hold it in the block. With the bracket loose you can twist and remove from the block. There is a oil ring on the end of the tube.
Sometimes the old tube is hard to remove...due to rust and corrosion. Spray the tube with a good penetrating oil before you start. Try to wiggle and twist the tube to brake it free....be careful, the tube is thin. If the tube breaks off flush with the block..the piece that in the block will need to get extracted out or remove the oil pan and remove it that way.

Toyota yaris problem


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

Broken dipstick engine oil


Shouldn't be to hard. Find where the sleeve is connected to the side of the engine. Usually one bolt. Remove the bolt. Remove dipstick sleeve from your engine. Then you can use a wire hanger from the other end to push it up. Or down which ever is easiest..

Hi I have a 96 camry and the oil dipstick tube has broken off how do I replace or repair the problem


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

When the dipstick was removed, the top of the tube to the engine broke off. How to repair please? Thank you


Plastic dip stick funnels are always snapping off.

Remove what you can see down to metal tube. With small hook on end of stiff wire, pull out inner plastic sleeve from tube.

If it won't come out...push it down so new funnel can be installed.

It can't hurt as the tube ends one eighth of an inch from the oil pan floor.

FYI. You need to cover top of new dip stick funnel with cloth and push home until you hear it click onto tube.

Broke hood latch cable pulling it Can't open hood How do I fix it?


You may be able to disconnect the cable behind the broken pull, then use a set of pliers to activate (pull) the cable within the sleeve - Otherwise you'll probably have to see a mechanic or body shop, as they are difficult to access when the hood lock is engaged...

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.
