Ha, Ha. I see it, now. Funny - thanks - I think I'll just stick with what I been doing for the last 40+ years. It'll have to be someone elses problem one day.
What do i think ~ How cheap can you get to use a plastic dipstick. and then charge some one like $20 for a replacement? Are they making these in China now ? ~~~OldGeezI read so many posts about people having the Oil Dip Stick break off after incorrectly putting it in and when you start the engine SNAP off it goes. You dont know this until next time when you check your oil. I have been very carefull when installing it but as with anything soner or later its your turn. Some that this has happened to them say no big deal see if you can fish it out, some say it gets ground up and plugs the oil pick up screen and starves the engine for presious oil. So....... Proactively what I did is purchase a new Oil Dip Stick $17.95 and took my current one and cut the stick off of the cap. I now will check the engine oil with my new one carried in a sealed tube in my storage box, and then reinstall just the dummy cap over the hole. No Dip Stick to break off.... What do you think?
