6.4 Oil leak/dipstick tube

Well I had a sneaking suspicion that my dipstick tube was bad from reading other forums and by the looks of my oil leak. Well I went to ford and purchased a dipstick tube from them and asked if it was a common problem. They told me it wasn't common but they have seen it and they said for them to replace it that they would have to drain the coolant and take off the coolant resivoir blah blah and it would be a couple hours of labor. Long story short I did it by myself with just a bit of frustration due to lack of space in about an hour while changing my oil. I also took the old dipstick tube and plugged one end, blew in the other and sure enough all the air came right out of a crack in the weld. I just wanted to share that in case anybody else has the same issue.
