Can't pull my oil dipstick out of motor!

Postby Basedgod_11 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 6:34 pm

I have a 2004 g35 coupe vq35de. For some reason my oil dipstick is stuck in the motor no matter how hard I pull it won't come out. Any ideas on how to pull it out? Has anyone els experience this?

No, I have no experience like this, that's weird. Check the tube for a kink that shouldn't be there. Maybe yours has been bent up. Also, try twisting the dip stick a bit. They're usually flat, so it may have gotten past a bend, then twisted and become stuck. It's hard for me to imagine gummed up oil being so thick that it would glue down the dip stick. Please let us know how it goes.
