Broken Dipstick Tube

3808 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  WITELITENIN
I pulled on my dipstick tube too hard while checking the oil. I can get it back in, but it is loose. Does anyone know if I am supposed to put sillicone, or epoxy to hold it in? I can tighten the mount for the tube, but what about the connection of the tube and the block? surely there is a seal or hi-temp sillicone that creates a seal. Please help.....the people at AutoZone have a combined IQ of 62!!

Dipstick is a pressure fit tube so your not going far enough in the block or the tube is no longer flanged. Wipe the stick off and put some loctite on it.
