2000 F250 oil leak where dip stick enters the pan

My truck has a leak where the dip stick enters the pan. I've spoken with three Ford mechanics and all said the pan had to come off to fix the problem. One said it is a forty hour labor bill. Anyone know a way to fix this without pulling the pan. Thanks.

It's a common problem. You can do it without the pan comeing off.

How is it done ? Is there somewhere I can get the information ? My mechanic thought that we could unscrew the nut on the side of the pan,but after thinking on it called a couple of mechanics at local Ford garages and they said that the pan had to come off.

I never done it personally. But I habe read a few pages on people doing them. It's very common just do a quick search on google.

I have seen on some custom diesel website. I want to say strictly diesel sells a repair kit for it. It's like a billet cover that basacly goes over the existing dipstick adapter on the oil pan and it covers it and makes a new seal. So u just put that new adapter over the old one and it's done

Nvm it does not cover it it completely replaces the original adapter. And it says that all the work can be done with the engine in the truck and the oil pan still in also

I found it at Strictly Diesel. I just downloaded the instructions for the repair. Pretty pricey,but if it cures the problem so be it.

Dipstick Tube Oring Repair - Ford Diesel Power Forums

A cheaper solution to Strictly Diesels->

"Go to a IH truck location and get (Dipstick Mount Seal Repair Kit with instructions (International) 1846146c91 (silicone, loctite gasket eliminator, adapter gasket, dipstick oring) the right orings 2 one big for around the big plug and a small one for the dip stick. also make sure you have a set of gripper clamps like doctors use or a needle nose vise-grips, to hold the brass part so you dont loose it inside the pan.
1 pull dip stick and the starter /yes you need the room so you dont drop the brass nut.
2. put the big oring on the clamp then grab the hole the dip sick goes in then back off the nut. check it as some have stripped the threads over tighting it trying to stop leak. if it is stripped then you got problems as it can only be replaced by dropping the pan. sorry i have not done it so no help there
3. very easy push the big brass in and cut the oring and get rid of the old. slip the new in it fits in a grove and then pull it back where it goes and thighten the not to just good not over tight so you stripp the nut."
