The tip of the oil dip stick broke off. What to do?
When checking the oil, 2004 Camry LE with 304,000 miles, I noticed the tip of
the dip stick was missing? Can I still drive the car? What to do?
I would change the oil and hope the broken bit comes out with the used oil. I would also install a magnetic drain plug if you don't have one already but the oil pickup screen should prevent any metal bits from going where they should not be so no worries. Any idea why the tip broke off?
I have no idea. In my research, someone suggested that it was close to the manifold - weakening the plastic tip
TOP OR BOTTOM? HOW MUCH? IS IT STUCK IN THE TUBE?? OR AS F O R SAID IS IT IN THE OIL PAN
I have no idea... when I was checking the oil, I simply noticed that the end of the stick was gone. Have to assume it's in the tube or in the pan. Have no way of knowing.
I just had this exact same thing happen in my 04 camry with 230K. How did you remove it?
