Hi! New to the FEOA... Have a question... Where can I buy an oil dipstick tube for our 1997 Escort LX? Love this car... Can't seem to find one. Had son in law try pull over from junkyard twice with no success.. apparently very tricky to get off in one piece. Tried ordering from eBay... Wrong one. Could use some input please.

eBay or junkyard would be your best bet.


I’ve had good luck removing them by removing oil pan and using a 3/8 socket extension and placing the end with the hold over the dipstick and hitting the other side with a hammer. This usually pops them right out of the hole. You do need to remove the bolt from the intake manifold that secures dipstick tube

Have you tried the dealership?

I've learnt that it's always worth a try. Often too expensive or unavailable, but sometimes available at a very reasonable price.
