transmission dipstick

I have an '05 CRD kj. The transmission dipstick keeps coming out about an inch to two inches while driving. It is driving me nuts is there a fix?

Mine does that too. Maybe not as far out as yours though.

I kinda watch it from time to time, seams to work its way up about an inch.

Generally just check it and push it down during fuel fills. Have read of some owners
pinching the top of the dip stick tube a bit to hold it in a bit better. Haven't got too excited
about trying that myself.

This has happened to me also. After talking to a number of transmission shops I finely found this to be an answer that made sense to me and took care of the this problem for me so far.. The breathing tube on the top front drivers side of the transmission has a small plastic air valve that allows it to breath. . It can get stuck open or closed. Its on a small hose about 2" long and you might need a mirror and flashlight to find it, and small hands to remove it and clean it. Mine was stuck in the closed position. I think this makes the dipstick pop up. If it stays stuck in the open position you could get water or dust and dirt in their as well. I removed the small hose and re-routed it to the engine compartment where I can keep an eye on it. I have not had the dip tube pop up since. Oilburner
