v10 oil dip stick stuck

Bought coach 2010 it is a 2008 Windsport A on an F53 2007 chassis and can't remove the dip stick. Everyone who has tried can't remove it. Unless someone has had same and has an answer I will need to replace the tube.

Just a thought! Have you attempted to remove it while creating a "twisting" motion on the handle of the dipstick. I can't think of anything that would prevent it from being removed except that it bacame stuck from heat and somehow congealed the oil to such an extent that it caused the metal of the stick to bond to some portion of the tube. Maybe a firm twist would break the "adhesion".

Tryed everything and nothing. Even the ford people couldn't find a way to get it out.

You'll have to wait for Arthur to pull it out, he will then become your king! Look around for an old guy with a white, long beard, Merlin will know where Arthur is hanging out!

Sounds good to me. Might also want to check to see if someone has crushed/bent the tube somehow...very strange. Let us know what you find. Bob

Edit: I see that you had it to Ford...did they get a tube on order for you?...or throw up their hands?

Ford shows new tube only $50.00 and $150.00 labor. Tube looks like a snake runover so not going to try myself. If no members have a soulation they had luck with to Ford I go.
