Question about Garden
That piece must come out! Do not run your engine before you are sure the dipstick has been removed. Try to avoid moving the mower while that piece is in there, as any bump can dislodge it from where it may have hopefully fallen: straight down.
Before you move anything, use a flashlight and look into the dipstick port--the hole that you check and fill the engine's oil from. Can you see the remains of the stick?
If you can, leave everything alone and go to your hardware store and buy a "parts grabber," it looks like a long spring and has tiny steel 'fingers' that will open and close when you push a plunger on one end. Carefully, slowly, try to grab that dipstick. Take your time and use extra care so you don't knock that dipstick into the crankcase.
If you succeed in removing the stick, inspect it carefully to be sure none of it has broken off into the crankcase of your mower's engine. Check the dipstick in its entirety, from the handle down, to be sure it is intact.
If you suspect any parts have remained in the crank, or if you cannot remove the dipstick from the oil fill/check hole, your last option is to dissamble the engine to remove its contaminants. This can be a costly, time consuming job.
--Hope this helps
