About two months ago I was installing my headers and I broke the tube that holds the dipstick in the oil pan . Normally this wouldn't be a bad thing, except for the fact that it broke flush with the hole in the block , so I couldn't get it out . Apparently the only way to get at it would be to drop the oil pan and push it out, which is a pain in the ass and a considerable job . Now I have a bolt plugging the hole and can't check my oil . I guess I just have to be religeous about my oil changes from now on until I have a good reason to drop the pan and fix it while I'm down there. If anyone has an easy fix for this, let me know!
