Does anyone know where I can purchase a dipstick tube for a 2001 Honda CRV? Honda no longers sells them "unless you purchase the entire engine," which I don't need.

Have you tried the local salvage yards?

Wait... You mean the TUBE that comes out of the block? Salvage yard. Should be an easy score.

I contacted Honda of Bowie, Maryland, and they went over and above my expectations to locate this part (11111-PR3-300 - oil level pipe). They located it in a matter of an hour by contacting the Honda New Jersey office and asking that they look up this specific part number (which everyone else said didn't exist).

Thank you for your concerns.

That's amazing.

I'd probably use Loctite Weld, or Plastic Steel to 'weld' it in place.

:idea:

Hi I have the same problem with my 01 crv ( dipstick tube) came out and is lost) can you tell me for sure that that is the part number cause the honda dealer says that part only fits a civic and a del sol? (# 11111-PR3-300 - oil level pipe)

B18B1 and B20 share the same engine block.

I just checked on an online Acura part catalog, 11111-PR3-300 is the right part #.

You can check by clicking on the link, it is #3.

Thanks for the help SpRuCe. I got the part and installed it, and, my Honda dealer made a note on his parts computer program that this part fits the 2001 crv. I also found that cleaning the rust inside the dipstick receiver for the dipstick tube or oil level pipe, will keep it from being pulled out again when block is hot (expanded).

bmeddie,

thanks for the tip. I just purchased a used 1st Gen and when I went to check the oil......the entire tube came out with the dipstick.

I got very scared since it was getting dark and I couldn't manage to put it back in its hole due to the hot heatshield.....but I did finally got it in there.

One thing I noticed is that there was no o-ring attached to that oil level pipe. Did the new one you purchased from the dealer come with a o-ring?

My other Hondas do have o-rings on the dipstick tubes.

No o-ring no retainer. after taking off exhaust manifold guard I had to force new one in to block.I used a slightly larger diameter box end wrench slide over the tube and hit the handle, while making sure the tube kept the correct angle left to right. Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for your response.

Did you have any trouble getting the exhaust heat shield off ? The bolts on mine appear rusted. I hope penetrating spray will do the magic.

No, but penetrating oil should used. Also, work them back and forth easily. You don't want to snap them off.

I have an 01 CRV that happened to just recently...Honda also told me I need to replace the whole block..I ordered the part number and compared the 2 at parts counter at Honda..The Honda parts guy just shook his head and asked if he could keep the part number..I said please do

Got home. squirted a little penetrating oil on the tube and stuck it in the block. Went in about 1/4 inch. I then took a 1/4 inch steel rod with a rubber tip on the end so I wouldn't damage the flange. Gently tapped each side and the front of the flange straight down until seated..And yes it took about 20 minutes..In there real good..Tight..

Couldn't of done it without you guys...Have great Holidays...
