My dipsticktube is broken off about tow inches above the motor. it a 93 s-10 with a 4.3. how would l remove it?

If the remaining part of the dip-stick tube is oil soaked. It should pull out easily. Take a small screw or bolt and slide it into the tube. The bolt must fit inside snug (don't use one that will drop down and inside the pan). At the bottom of the tube, wet it with penetrating oil (to break up the rust). Then attach the vice-grips to the tube. The bolt or screw is to prevent you from crushing the tube. Gently rock the vice-grips back and forth, to break the tube loose from the engine block. Don't be too rough, you don't want to break the tube flush. If you are unsuccessful, remove the vice-grips and with a small hammer and flat chisel. Gently tap the bottom of the tube. Don't cut through it, the goal is to try to break the rust inside loose. After a few taps, reconnect the vice-grips and try again. you may need to repeat 6-12X so be patient. Please let me know about your progress and if you have other questions, good luck.

Bolt is stripped can get off tried penetrating oil didn't work need help

I would use a vise-grip that fits really snug and you should be able to break it loose. You will want to replace the bolt so you don't have this problem again

Plug was overtightened .. subsequently stripped .. took it in for an oil change & they tried a vice grip on the plug .. no movement but bolt head is gone . I need remobe the plug .. I have a new...

They should have never used a vice grip. You always use a socket on any hard to remove bolts because it provides equal force around the entire bolts. Vice grips only grab two sides.
You can try a bolt extractor, you can purchase them at Lowes and other places.
If it doesn't work, you will need a new oil pan.
Stop going to the place(s) that put it on too tight, and tried to take it off with vice grips.

I want change the air filter and oil filter. How do I do that and is their any special tool need for each area?? I have a 2007 volkswagen passat/4 door

No there's no specific special tools required, you can buy oil filter removal tools which are usually a chain that is rapped around it to get grip or a claw type thing. Try to loosen it with your hand first and if that doesn't work you could use a fan belt and vice-grip's or buy a removal tool. the air filter is just a matter of flicking if a few clips.
good luck

2005 pontiac sunbird oil filter location

Your looking for the location of your oil filter on your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. They use a fabric/paper file which is located on the top/front of your engine. If your vehicle has an Ecotec engine, then open your hood. stand directly in the center of your car looking toward the windshield. And when you look down, it's at the front of the engine over to the right a bit. You need a certain tool, or Vice grips to turn the large plastic shaped cover off (Counter clockwise to losen). When it is loose, and you take off the cap. the oil filter will come out with it, you pull it off, and replace it with a new one.

Oil filte removal

If you are disposing of old filter complete and replacing with completely new filter then drive a medium size screwdriver through the side of the body of the filter,till it pokes through the other side then turn the screwdriver to unscrew the filter.Or you can purchase a pair of vice grips with a chain head at any hardware store.
