Broken Oil Dipstick Removal “Cool Trick”

Broken Oil Dipstick Removal “Cool Trick”


Okay, so if you’ve got a broken oil dipstick this video is for you
I’ll show you three easy ways to remove a broken oil dipstick
First
We’re going to try using a cell you can try using a self-tapping stirred screw
Just screw right into the end of the oil dipstick a lot of times
This is a relatively easy method
But the steel part of the stick sometimes protrudes up to the plastic so it’s hard to screw through so on this one
I’m actually gonna try a different method first
I’m just gonna spray some lubricant inside here. You know make sure you
Can move freely
And you’re trying to get this thing out
But what we’re actually going to do on this one is we’re gonna try and use compressed air through
the tank a crankcase
To try and push the oil dipstick out
as you can see it’s broken, so
So we got oil dipstick tube all lubed up good, so hopefully this sucker will just pop right out
So I’m gonna take shop air if you don’t have shop air then I’m gonna show you a few other methods
Towards the end of the video on how you can get this out
But in a case where this works. This is probably easiest one because it only takes about
20 seconds
So I’m starting putting compressed air straight into where the oil cap oil filler cap is
On this one. It’s got up. It’s actually got a van right off the valve cover. I could hear the air
The next air escaping so I’m gonna have to pull that tube off
And I’m just gonna block that hole with my finger depending on the type of car you have you may not have to do that
But if it’s got a breather. I’ll stop the valve cover you have to block that now old to get
Enough pressure in the system
and we got plenty of pressure a
This sucker doesn’t want to budge so of course for the sake of the video
It’s not gonna work, but I can assure you I’ve done this many times and so depending on how severe
The dipstick oil dipstick is stuck in the dipstick tube
Will depend on whether or not this method works or not. I would probably say 70 percent of the times
Compressed air will work for getting that broken dipstick out
I’m just gonna tap on a little bit. Maybe try and loosen that up
See if that helps at all
Oh and nothing
Now sir if you have another person around you can
Come over and maybe just tap on it well. He has a compressed-air in there
See if that helps at all that’s what I’m gonna do here in a minute
And still nothing
Okay, it’s just probably a good thing because probably what I flew out and hit him in the face, so
What I can show you this is a
Pretty cool little trick and it does work
So you can always try this first if you have access to compressed air
If you don’t then there’s a few other methods, you can remove the dipstick itself on this one
It’s just a 13 millimeter bolt and I can remove the whole oil dipstick tube and then just pull it right out
Or if you don’t want to pull the dipstick tube out, you can just run a self-tapping screw down in through there
And do it that way?
Which I tried?
Putting a self-tapping screw down in there and you can see the bits of pieces coming out there and there the stick
That’s a plastic that shredded, but it had a steel core in the middle of the oil dipstick tube
That I couldn’t drill through so that’s not gonna work on this one
So we’re actually gonna remove the oil dipstick tube so we can get the oil dipstick out
Alright, so I got the oil dipstick out now and the oil dipstick tube and
I was able to just push to push it out through the bottom of the tube these things usually come out relatively easy
like I said
It was just one bolt holding this whole tube in
So there’s a number of different ways you can go about getting these dipsticks out a lot of times if you know
There is a pretty simple easy way to try if not self tapping screw. You just screw it in there. Just like that
And then you can you can pull it out
But a lot of times when you try to screw the screw in it pushes the dipstick down in farther
But I hope this video was helpful. If so hit thumbs up and like my channel Thanks
