So I went to get my oil changed two weeks ago at a muffler man. I checked my oil today...well, tried to... And this happened.







Someone please help... How do I get it out?

See if you can get a long screw to bite into the plastic don't sink it in too far think like you are pulling out a wine cork

I tried and i apparently hit the metal part and it stopped screwing in... And it won't work to pull it out. I think I'm fucked.

This just happens to addbto my glorious month of June. Fresh out of hospital and now bad crap keeps going wrong.

Small drill bit to start a hole and a small screw.
Agree with that, but before putting a self-tapping screw into the new hole, warm the dipstick tube up a bit with a hot air gun. The screw will go in easier (otherwise the screw will push the plastic plug further down the dipstick tube). Leave it to cool a bit then the whole thing can be drawn out. This happened to me some time ago, and it is the only thing that worked for me.

Anyone know how much a new one costs? Mopar or not? Caus I can't find a magnum anywhere at any salvage yards in michigan.

There is little to nothing left of my stick. Just the metal part that goes in and some of the melted plastic. I dunno how to get the tube off or get it out.

I have no money for the stealership either
