I have an oil leak from bottom of the dipstick tube as it enters the sump. Is it the seal that needs replacing or as i have been told by a mechanic tonight that i need a dipstick receiver. I have been told that the dipstick tube just pushes into the hole in the sump and bolted to the side of the inlet manifold near the top of the dipstick tube. Any help on how to change the seal/receiver would be great.

cheers

There shoild be an O ring where the stick plugs down into the block.

Unbolt it from the manifold and pull the guide out.............may be a little tricky...........just replace the o-ring, check the guide for any damage.
