my g/f's 2.0 dip stick and the whole orange plastic that holds it is broken. The dipstick can no longer hold in upward place and keeps sliding downward.

Is this a common problem ? , also how much does the part cost and labor costs ?

Re: dipstick broken (bluebora20v)

My wife is afraid to check the oil after the tube "exploded" the only time she ever checked it.

Will the compltely shattered almost gone dipstick tube cause any of the oil to leak in the oil pan ?

No. I accidentaly punched mine and broke it a few weeks back and then ended up breaking the base of the replacement when I went to install it. I just taped up the base and it works fine. I also painted it with some of that black plastic paint by Krylon, gets rid of the orange ugly factor. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
