    thats odd, are you sure about it missing ? It's sort of hidden, tucked beside the air filter. It must be running pretty rough with that big a vacuum leak. If you need a tube and dipstick go to your local wrecking yard or order new from

    Oil Dipstick Tube

    So, I'm still fixing up my newly purchased 1983 E21 to make it inspectable and road ready. I was about to do an oil change when I realized the car has no dipstick or dipstick tube. Does anyone know where I can pick up a tube and a dipstick?

    Thanks in advance,
