Dorman - Help Universal Oil Dipstick

Part No. 65116 Warranty Details

Re-engineered to address common failure points in the original design. Our Engine Oil Dipstick is differentiated by its long-lasting handle. Made of tough plastic, the handle won’t break from the rod.

Product Features:
  • Clear marks on the rod promise easy-to-read oil levels
  • O-ring seals the top of the dipstick, prohibiting contaminants from escaping into the engine oil bay
  • Application-specific direct replacement for proper fit
  • Brightly-colored handle makes the dipstick easy to locate under the hood

      I used your live help section, and the person seems very nice and knowledgeable. I gave her the VIN No., year and make of Subaru. The dipstick did not fit. I will have to go to a Subaru dealer. Carter was right; life is unfair.

      • Easy To Install

      • Doesn't Fit Like The Oem

      • Replacement

      Comments about Dorman - Help Universal Oil Dipstick:

      I ordered online using promo code P20 and saved 20%. Picked up in store a few minutes later;

      It replaced the engine oil dipstick on my 1997 Suzuki Sidekick Sport 1.8l; It seems to work properly however it does not fit like the oem design, Your best bet is to keep your old dipstick and adjust this new one to the proper length to insure you get accurate readings when you do check your oil. However the handle sticks up and contacts the hood when I close it, so I had to wrap a washcloth around and tape it to dampen the vibration. I'll be replacing this dipstick when I find the proper one I need at a junk yard but I am not worried about losing oil, or the functional operation of this dipstick, I just personally do not like that it fits differently where it makes the seal in the engine block.

      Pros

      • I guess it is functional

      Cons

      • Doesn't provide a seal

      Best Uses

        Comments about Dorman - Help Universal Oil Dipstick:

        It is a functional product but a universal fit. The adjustable stop, which limits the depth of the dipstick into the crackcase, has a felt washer that contacts the top of dipstick tube, sits on top of it, and it provides the only seal to the crackcase. For my purposes, a 1998 HX Civic, the original dipstick came with 2 O-rings that fit inside the dipstick tube and sealed it off. I wasn't comfortable with the difference between the two, so before I ever even gave universal dipstick a try, I returned it for a full refund.
