It's small and plastic and skinny so it's not going to damage anything if it does go into sump. However try this: Spray some cleaner down onto broken dipstick to get rid of any dirt and oil. Get a knitting needle or something plastic that will fit down tube. Cut end off flat. Put some super glue on end of needle and push down tube till you feel it touch broken dipstick. WAIT till glue goes off (about a minute). Very gently pull up and hopefully broken part will stay stuck to needle. Good Luck!

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

SOURCE: Changing the outside door handle on a 1997 Toyota Starlet

There is two bolts that hold the window slider thing in place. One just below one of the door handle nuts inside the door and the other is on the outside of the door (on the inside of the car). Once these are removed it enables you to move that mech out of the way to get to the other bolt.

I undone the 3 latch screws to give me a bit more movement in the rod that connects to the handle too.

This should give you enough room to get to that other nut and clip the rod into the handle once installed.

Once handle is installed simply just slide the window mech back up into position and bolt back in.

How do i change oil and filter in toyota estima


There are two ways of changing the oil, and both involve running the engine until hot first.

Firstly, don't forget to have the spares (this includes enough oil to fill the sump -- find this quantity in the vehicle's instruction-book --and filter) and the necessary tools (oil-filter remover belt or long, thick screwdriver, sump-plug key and bowl) to hand.

The first way is to put a bowl which will contain enough to hold the lubricant under the sump and carefully releasing the sump plug. Do wear plastic (not rubber, as these dissolve in oil) whilst you're doing this as used oil can be carcinogenic. Now (remember the engine is hot), carefully loosen the sump plug. Put the bowl underneath the sump and remove the sump plug. It is more important to avoid the boiling oil than to catch the sump plug, which can be fished out later, when cool. Once cool, remove the bowl and replace the sump plug.

The second way is to go to a garage which offers free oil changes (you only buy the oil) and they will put a tube down your dipstick aperture and vacuum the oil out. This is not as good as allowing the oil to drip through the sump drain hole.

Now remove the oil filter using the strap or by piercing the old filter with a screwdriver and using that as a lever and turning the filter anticlockwise.

Put a little oil on the seal of the new filter and screw this onto the seating by hand. DO NOT TIGHTEN BEYOND HAND-TIGHT.

Refill the sump with the manufacturer's recommended type and quantity of clean oil, though there may be a little residual oil in the engine, so do check before overfilling. Do not overfill.

Put a piece of sticky paper in the driver's door jamb with the date and mileage at which you changed the oil and filter.

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..
