What is the recommended method.
The tube came out with the dipstick and it is very difficult to reinsert without removing the exhaust manifold heatshield.
I've done it several times and haven't removed the heat shield yet (sometimes it took almost 1/2 hr of trying).
I am planning on taking that heatshield off to do it properly, but what is the best way to reseat that dipstick tube so that if doesn't come loose again?
Should I clean out the tube hole in the block with a little brake cleaner or ? so that the tube may seat better? Perhaps put on a gasket maker type compound, use a glue like JB Weld, or ????
Whoops, I just did a search on this problem (should've done it first) and found a few solutions. Anyone have other ideas or experience with this problem?
