is it ok to remove dipstick tube?
2001 sentra gxe, i have the dipstick problem. problem is that glue, vacuum, and compressed air have not worked for me.
I called a mobile mechanic from craigslist, and he recomended i buy a new dipstick and tube, and he would remove the old tube for me and replace. I prefer that to removing the oil pan, because I feel removing the pan should be the last resort.
problem is now that i am getting 2nd thoughts about removing the tube - is it really safe? will the new tube fit in easily without any problems? I know some other ppl have mentioned the tube method but they haven't really expanded on their experiences.
