Can you remove the tube?The dipstick will still be inside the tube resting at the bottom of the oil pan.The tubes are either bolt on or a press-in style.To remove press-in you will need a bolt that fits inside the tube without being too tight.Then grab the tube with a channel lock or vice grip plier and carefully turn the tube back and forth while pulling on it at the same time.The back and forth motion is circular on the axis of the tube,not up and down or side to side(you'll just break it off).After removal of the tube you can pull out the remainder of the stick.Be careful not to push the stick into the pan or you'll need to remove the pan to get it out.

Car problem troubleshoot


i had this with my 2.0 IDE laguna. it was due to a low voltage level on battery enough power to fire the relays, but not enough to turn the starter. check that your battery voltage is high . i ended up getting anew battery and a battery conditioner from ebay to just keep the voltage topped up when not using the car, i never found what was causing the drain on battery though

Oil dipstick ident.


very possible
best go to a wreckers/junk yard and get the stick that is the same length as the broken one
the critical distance is from where the stick sits on the end of the tube to where the oil level marks are .
from the tube up length does not matter

Checking oil level on my V3 Vortech dipstick is located on side of unit . Pics available


The dipstick tube should be as high as the top of the engine, and you should be able to remove the dipstick from it by simply pulling it straight out (no unscrewing).
No oil should come out because engine oil only goes up about a third 1/5th the way inside the engine. So unless it is overfilled, you shouldn't worry about pulling the stick up and out.
Check the oil level with the car on level ground, and with it turned off for at least 10 minutes so all the extra oil drips down to the bottom of the engine first. Then pull the stick straight up and out, wipe all the oil off of it using a paper towel or clean tissue, then put the dipstick back in (you may need to turn it left or right just a little bit to help it past some of the bends in the tube). Push it ALL the way in, then pull it straight back out again. Look for the oil sticking to it at the bottom. You should see a clear line somewhere between the full and fill lines.
If it is low, but there is at least SOME oil, take it to a Jiffy Lube and have them check and top it off. IF there is NO oil on the stick, you should not start it until some oil is added.
I cannot go in to how to add oil here as it is different on different cars - but you do NOT put oil into the dipstick hole.

Where do i pour transmission fluid


Always check the transmission fluid with the engine hot (after driving) and while the car is idling and in park.

Pour the transmission fluid, using a funnel, into the tube where the transmission dipstick is. The dipstick handle is usually the RED one.

Do not overfill the transmission fluid, as this could cause it to come out into the engine compartment thru the filler/dipstick tube when it becomes hot and potentially catch on fire.

Good luck

THE CAR STARTS, THE SHIFT LEAVER MOVES TO ALL THE POSITIONS BUT THE REANSMISSION NEVER ENGAGES AND THE CAR WONT MOVE.


how easily dies the shifter move? if it feels as if there is no pressure, then possibly the cable is broken. have you had the fluid level checked? maybe there is a leak you are unaware of.
