Dip Stick Leak

I have a pretty decent sized oil leak that i am pretty sure is all coming out of the bottom of the dip stick. If you unthread the nut on the oil pan is there a plate thats going to fall into the oil pan or is it just threaded into the pan itself. Also the dip stick itself is loose. I am going to change the oil tommoro so i figured i would finally take care of it. Is there just an o ring in there or somethin that can be replaced or if there is a plate behind that nut how the heck do ya hold it Thanks for any help

this is what I did and it took care of it pretty good, I cleaned the area real good with break cleaner, and after it dried I tightened the bolt real good but it would keep rattling loose, so I took a bunch of RTV and covered that bolt and it helped from keeping the bolt rattling loose and helped seal it a little more

yes, the plate will fall off into the oil pan if you unthread the nut. International sells a kit to repair that leak but you have to be careful because if you let the threaded part fall into the pan you either have to fish it out or lift the motor enough to remove the oil pan.

that's pretty much all the repair kit is. It has a new gasket, flange sealant and a huge tube of really good RTV that it says to use the whole tube of.

Get this and follow the instructions. It has every thing you need.

If you don't and screw up, you will drop the part into the abyss. It is an easy fix, no special talent required.
But if you lose that part in the pan, you are hurt.
