Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Was the twist uniform and it looked like there where no tool marks from someone doing this?

A twist in a dipstick is normal on ALOT of vehicles. It adds strength to the dipstick to make it easier to get into the tube. In the event a new dipstick is needed. Finding one is going to be impossible but I can help you make one.

Thanks for letting me help you & for leaving me a ~5 STAR EXCELLENT~rating when ready. Rating results in the website paying me from the question fee you have already paid. Although I appreciate customers saying "Thank You" that alone does not result in me being compensated if you were pleased.

Thanks Chris
