You can go to your favorite mechanic and he'll do it. For your dipstick, you could try to rotate it. It may unblock it.

My Nissan Altima 2013 it was jerking and driving 5 miles an hour. I took it to the dealership had a recall on the transmission sensor and they claim they fixed it and when I throw it away it's not acting worse than it did before. I took it back to them and they tell me I need a new transmission
