Question about 1995 Ford Mustang
I purchased a 95 Mustang V6 and then learned it had a broken dip stick. Purchased a new casing but the garage said to drill out the old casing they have to pull the engine. Is this true? What can I do?
Most dipstick tubes are a "press fit" into the engine block, and can usually be removed without pulling the engine (if you can get to it).
However, it may be broken off too short, or the mechanic simply cannot reach it with the engine in the car.
Personally, I would get a second opinion before you pay all that money to get a $10 dipstick tube to be replaced.
Try the local Ford dealer. Most of the time, a seasoned dealer mechanic knows "tricks" to do different things.
