A replacement for a broken dipstick tube for the Ford Focus can bepurchased at most auto part retailers. As of 2014 the average costfor a replacement is 15.00.
depends on the engine, most have one bolt holding it in place located near the exhaust manifold, take that out and it should wiggle out.
If the dipstick has broken off into the tube on a Nissan Altima,you can remove it using pliers. Other people have had luck usingindustrial strength vacuums and sucking the bro…ken dipstick up.
how do you replace a dipstick tube on a 96 dodge intrepid
most dipsticks have a lip and maybe even an o-ring at the bottom.. usually you can grab with hands or tool like pliers, wiggle and pull out old tube.. place new tube in hole…. push by hand till stops then with something softer like rubber mallet or piece of wood, tap down until seated at lip.
In many vehicles, the dipstick tube can be removed. Check and see if this is possible on your vehicle. If so, just remove the tube from around the dipstick. There should then …be enough of the dipstick sticking out from the engine to grab on to.
pop the hood. look at the engine valve cover, which says DOHC... and look slightly down.
Hi, I believe that Isuzu calls it an oil gauge tube or close to that, but you can go to http://www.myisuzuparts.com and input your specific vehicle information to find out w…hat is needed for your vehicle. In the Veh. I.D. box you only enter the last nine digits of your VIN number. There are all kinds of diagrams with corresponding numbers to parts with their numbers listed also below the diagram(s). This site is supposed to be being taken down by Isuzu. Maybe if all of us Isuzu owners write or call them we can get them to keep it up. It is full of information not obtained elsewhere due to you can get vehicle specific parts listings with names of item and parts numbers for cross referencing. You may have to enter it as Sensor: Crank position due to the setup of the sit. That is, once you have picked the proper category when on site, as it gives a group of choices to choose from. I believe this falls under electrical, but I may be wrong as Isuzu lists different than what I am used to. Try different ways and see what it pulls up, you are bound to locate what you need, I know it is there some where.
why does oil come out of dipstick on a1996 12v commin
In Cars & Vehicles
Replace the tube. The tube should be pressed or screwed in. So pull and twist to the left snd it should come out. IF IT BROKEN RIGHT AT THE BLOCK! I had the same on 200…3 f350 v10 6.8l. I needed a few tools,time,and patience. 1) Kobalt 4-Piece Hook and Pick Set * Item #: 239658 * Model #: 324621N (lowes) 2) Dremel Flex-Shaft Attachment* Item #: 94685* Model #: 225-01 (lowes) 3) dremel to fit flex shaft( I had one, a 345) (lowes) 4) Dremel 3/8" Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone* Item #: 94729* Model #: 952(lowes) 5) Digital Inspection Camera Item # 67979 Manufacturer: Cen-Tech (harbor freight) 6) guide wire for drop ceiling, about 3 feet 7) foam ear plug 8) flexible magnet stick 9) 12 inch 3/8" ratchet extension 10) craftsman awl 11) Harbor freight has long pipe cleaners the size of largest oil tube buy a new tube so you can see what it looks like. you will see it is tapered at the end. THE HOLE IN THE BLOCK WAS THE SIZE OF THE LARGER PART OF TUBE ALL THE WAY THROUGH ON MINE! First thing is to remove tire/ remove plastic wheel well, be careful of the plastic push buttons holding wires on engine compartment side./use camera down through the exhaust manifold, behind the engine mount and look for the hole. Reach around the engine mount that holds oil filter( you need small hands like mine, this is a very tight spot). push ear plug in the hole. this will stop things from dropping in. use flex dremel with grind wheel to grind the top of tube off.you can now see the seam between tube and block with the camera. use a drywall screw to remove ear plug.DRAIN OIL AND LEAVE BOLT OUT. side guide wire through tube and down to bottom of oil pan. use small piece of wire to snake it out of drain hole. use awl and place it in seam between tube and the block and tap it down folding tube in a LITTLE.you should have to do this at 4 or 5 locations or so around hole.I had to use a 1 foot piece of3/4" rigid pipe to tap it because of the little room between manifold and mount.spray with pb buster spray heavily and leave overnight, spray again and again.now use straight awl from Kobalt kit. do the same as awl, but this time use 1 foot 3/8 ratchet extension through the exhaust manifold and place on top of Kobalt awl, hold ext on awl with one hand and use hammer to tap the extension from the top down a little more then the first time carefully, don't break it. move it to different spots between tube and block. you should have to do this at four locations or so. It may side down into pan, if not try taping kobalt awl around again, then you could use a screw driver to tap it down into the pan, it will slide down the wire and can be guided out on wire. use Harbor freight long pipe cleaner to clean hole. I over filled oil, DO NOT START ENGINE and changed OIL AGAIN.I did this to get any debris out. Good luck!

Try using a piece of rubber hose with hose clamps to put back together
In Ford F-150
It is really not that hard, get a 5 inch long corse screw put a thick washer on it, then screw it inside the the broken shaft ..then yank out with a claw hammer
In Dodge Power Wagon
If you have the right kind of ez out,pull the piece out. Freeze the net tube over night and install it real quick.
In Dodge Caravan
You would probably have to follow the dipstick tube to where it meets the engine, remove the bracket bolt and either remove the tube or lift it up to push the dipstick up or o…ut of the tube.
