For most chev they are pressed into the block and then there is a piece with a nut that screws on somewhere to keep it steady. If it broke at the base where it is pressed in, my advice is get a very slim hard pick, and pry it around the edge until you can bend in the outer edge of the remaining tube. once that starts to fold, get some needle nose pliers and push it into itself more and it will just pop out. A new one will push in just fine, make sure you screw in the arm that holds it in place or you will replacing another one.

Oil dipstick broke and fell into tube. How do I remove it from the tube?


tubes are either held in place with a retaining bolt or are just pressed in the block

01 Lincoln nativagator oil tube dipstick broke off an don't know where to find the other part that's still on the engine an what I need to get it replaced an how soon?


The part that broke off might be long enough to still be in the tube and you can get it out by removing the tube out of the block should be just pressed in and can be pulled out, check to see if it has a bolt holding it. If the part that broke off is short and fell into the oil pan don't worry about it just put in a new dipstick

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.

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.

Dip stick for the oil broke off and is stuck inside


SOMETIMES A SMALL POWERFUL MAGNET CAN BE USED TO EXTRACT THE STICK BUT REMOVAL OF THE OIL PAN IS ONE METHOD THAT ASSURES ALL REMNANTS OF THE DIPSTICK ARE REMOVED FROM THE OIL PAN. TRY FISHING THROUGH THE TUBE BEFORE RESORTING TO PULLING THE PAN. YOUR IMAGINATION IS A POWERFUL TOOL. BEST OF LUCK. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANK YOU FOR USING FIX-YA.

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.
