I broke off my oil dip stick at the block. How do I get the rest of it out? can't seem to reach it.

you can make something to "hook" the rest of it out of the block? try to fit a slide hammer in there and try to get it out that way?

If this is a small block there are actually 2 tubes in the hole. There is a lower tube to keep the stick away from the rotating parts and then the upper tube goes in. I have had success in removing the broken piece by splitting one side of the tube with a small chisel then pulling it out with needle nose pliers. This is hard to do with the engine in the car.

Find a sheet metal screw that will screw into the broken off part and then pull it out with channel locks or something like that.

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction
