My Transmission dipstick is stuck. It won't come out of the tube, so I can check my level.
I'll unlock it, and try to pull it out, but it won't budge at all. It won't twist, or pull.
I know I can pull out the whole tube, and if the stick is stuck in the tube, then it will come out. But I was just seeing if there was an easier way, or if the stick is stuck in the trans, not the tube.
Has any one else had this issue, or have any ideas how I can get the stick out.
Thanks in Advance.

Yea my'n does that from time to time.....Usually just some wiggling and pulling will get it out. Once i do get it out..i usually put some ATF on the rubber seal part at the top of the dipstick..this usually helps the dipstick come out a little easier next time i go to check it.
