Oil check dipstick handle broke off dropping dipstick below top of tube making it unreachable. Can I unscrew the tube with a vice grip to remove and replace the dipstick?

Yes they usually just pop out! Check pick and pull junkyards first......

take the rubber hose off that goes from the valve cover to the air intake boot. Apply compressed air to the valve cover side and the broken part will shoot out.
