Yes. It's plastic and it's next to the engine. Over time the plastic weakens from heat cycling. You can buy a replacement and install it yourself fairly easily. They are avail at ECS Tuning or you can buy it from the dealer.
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
