Hi!!

the dipstick tube is fasten by a bolt either at the bottom or in the middle of the tube, if it was at the middle, I don't think it would have broken. Look at the base of the dipstick tube where it goes into the engine block, there should be a bolt, use a 10 mm. socket and a long extension to remove it., then pull the tube out.

I believe the dipstick tube is bent, that's why the dipstick can't go all the way into the oil pan.

Good Luck!! Don't forget.to rate this post!!

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.

How do i refill the transmission oil in my 1997 Micra auto (1 ltr). Can't find the cap.


Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube. You'll Need a Funnel that Fits inside the Transmission Dip Stick Tube. This Should Resolve your Question. Please Vote and That actually sends me How Well I have Helped You.

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.

2003 nissan sentra gxe trouble shifting into 2nd gear on auto transmission...dealer and aamco say nothing wrong any suggestions?


Hi. The Nissan has been known to have issues with the stock solenoids that are installed by the factory. The transmission also has a OD shift solenoid as well. I would do two things. ONe, check the fluid level if you can. It shouldn't be caped with a plug but, some models have sealed transmissions. If your model has a dip stick, please check the level of the transmission fluid. If the level is ok, i would drop the pan and check the solenoids to make sure that they are working properly. while the pan is dropped, It will be good to visually inspect the bottom of the pan for metal fragments and discolored fluid.If you see anything not normal like black fluid or metal small fragments, this will not be normal. Although, the shift patterns of this model are quite unusual, I would recommend using the instructions above to make sure that this transmission is not malfunctioning.


please rate and have a great weekend..
