Re: OEM Oil Dipstick
Im not really sure how your dipstick is set up, but here is what I did once.
I looked up the vehicle's oil capacity, and filled it with new filter the exact amount. I put the dipstick in, and it didnt register. So, I shortened the dipstick tube by cutting it one little bit at a time until it registered at the mark. It was perfection I tell ya. Most aftermarket dipstick tubes are modifyable in this way. So, If you can cut and reattach this thing like that then I would definitely do that. Getting the OEM dipstick is going to be hard unless you find a junkyard with it. But I would just modify the one you have and call it a day.
