Hi. Have you attempted to remove the dip stick tube yet? It is best accessed from underneath the vehicle. There is one bolt that holds it in. THe bolt is on the oil filter housing. You may have to remove the intake tube that runs under the oil pan to get to the bolt. Check that out and let me know. Thanks.
