I've had some success with a jig saw blade if the metal stick came out leaving the plastic behind. I put the blade in the slot with the teeth backwards and use vise grips to clamp onto it.

SOURCE: Oil dip stick broke off about 1 inch in shaft

You have to remove the oil dipstick tube.  Most are just pushed into the engine block with a o ring seal.  With some effort you should be able to pull it directly out.  Have you tried a bent coat hanger with a barbed end?
The procedure is easy the acessability may be the hard part.

8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

Too much oil in car


You may siphon the excess oil by the engine dip stick tube after you have removed the oil dip stick,using a small plastic hose long enough to reach the oil pan and attached to an empty plastic bottle to which you have drilled a hole on the cap and sealed the hose with any material like chewing gum to prevent leakage, compress the bottle to empty the air and allow the suction to remove the excess oil . Check the oil level with the oil dip stick and continue the operation until you have reached the desired oil level. This will prevent you from removing the excess engine oil by the oil pan drain plug.

Good luck with this project.......I done this before and it works.

Check the oil level on the dip stick in your engine. If the dip stick indicates you are low on oil add the proper oil for your make and model.

When the dipstick was removed, the top of the tube to the engine broke off. How to repair please? Thank you


Plastic dip stick funnels are always snapping off.

Remove what you can see down to metal tube. With small hook on end of stiff wire, pull out inner plastic sleeve from tube.

If it won't come out...push it down so new funnel can be installed.

It can't hurt as the tube ends one eighth of an inch from the oil pan floor.

FYI. You need to cover top of new dip stick funnel with cloth and push home until you hear it click onto tube.

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.
