Having trouble installing new dipstick tube?
I have removed the worn out (and broke) oil dipstick tube, and it has been a struggle getting the new one to set in the block. The "ribs" on the base of the tube will not push into or seat correctly.

You just stated that its broke, are you sure you have removed the broken piece inside it. Tell me this, put your 2 dipsticks (old/new) beside each other, are they of the same length?
