I have a 2002 Nissan Sentra. The oil dip stick broke and 1/2 remains inside the tube. Any way to remove it so that I can replace it with a new one I purchased? Thanks.

Try using a tubular flexible strong magnet. If it is stuck too tignt, you would need to remove the dipstick tube, which is not an easy task as the exhaust manifold is in the way.
