Broken Dip Stick

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.

Broken Dip stick,


To check to see if that tip has broken off,there is a magnetic pick up tool,stiff or flexible depending on the need. That would easily draw that out of there. More than likely that is the problem.Or someone sold you the wrong dipstick.

Oil dip stick handle for Ford Focus ZX3 broke off. Rest of the dip stick still in the tube. How do I retrieve the remaining portion of the oil pan dip stick?


Drill small hole in what's left inside the tube - insert bolt extractor - pull out dip stick. Material is relatively soft so drilling is easy. Buy new dip stick.
