Engine oil dipstick tube

Does anyone by chance know if a TJ 2.5 dipstick tube will fit a YJ 2.5 ?

Dodge discontinued the part for my jeep.

The blocks are pretty much identical so it should fit.

I broke it trying to force it in.

Once I got the new one I used the correct method of freezing the tube and heating the motor. It went in smoothly with the tap of a wrench on the flare.

Unfortunately I have a leak around the brand new oil dipstick tube.

So at this point I think I have cylinder blow bye....?

I will search for how to test that. I'm feeling bummed at this point.

You dont get blow by leaks from the dip stick(Usually). It blows out the top. Check your CCV and the tubing on the vents on the valve cover. Make sure they are not blocked. Your tube issue might be just a bad seal and a little oil resistant rtv might fix ya up!

Pull the tube and clean out the hole real good with some brake cleaner on a rag. Then when installing the tube back in put some RTV at the top 1 inch or so of the tube. When you seat it in, it will create a seal. I just did this yesterday.

And yes the dip stick is same for all 2.5s. I have a list of things that are the same and stuff that is not, based on years of the 2.5

OK fella's thanks for the advice.

I'll first check the CCV/PVC lines.

Then if I have to bite my lip and pull that damn thing back out I will try and clean the hole and reinstall with RTV.

Oil resistant stuff. Make sure you check both sides of the hoses on the valve cover.
