The dipstip to my Nissan Sentra was broke and stuck in the tube. I tried other known methods that probably would have worked except for some reason the plastic piece seemed to be very tight in the tube. Methods I tried are, Super glue with pencil/wooden dowel, Shopvac suction, Compressed Air in crankcase.
Here’s the method I used and worked great. Supplies needed:
1) Exacto Knife
2) Epoxy for (at least) metal and plastic
3) Pliers or Vise Grips (I needed only because I had a lot of resistance removing)
Remove the blade from the exacto knife. Loosen the end of the exacto knife.
Now that you loosed the end see if you can slip the end of the exacto knife over of the end of the dipstip that’s in the tube.
Once you’ve slipped the exacto knife over the dipstick end turn clockwise to tighten. This will (should) clamp down on the end of the dipstick. See if you can pull the dipstick from the tube. If not proceed to the next step.
Mix the Epoxy as instructed. Using a toothpick take the mixed epoxy and press some in the end of the exacto knife where the slits are.
Once you applied the epoxy to the exacto knife slip the end of it over the end of the dipstick and tighten. Let sit so the epoxy has time to harden (refer to your epoxy instructions).
After epoxy has hardened pull to remove the dipstick. This is where I used Vise Grips on the end of the exacto knife to give me more leverage to pull.
Hope this works for you. Let me know. Thanks.
Sorry if the pics dont work. Tried using urls from 2 different sites.
