    Default Transmission dipstick recall

    I took my truck in for a broken drivers side door handle, and my service advisor stated that there was a recall for a "transmission dipstick tube fracture". He advised me that the recall basically corrects the problem of of the dipstick breaking a weld and allowing it to be loose (by loose I do not mean removed from the transmission, just a lot of play) in the engine bay. If anybody is having this problem, I've typed the service ticket which includes the recall number and part number.

    "Perform recall #12138 Transmission Dipstick Tube Fracture
    V2644 Install Foam sleeve on transmission dipstick per recall
    FC: Part # 24262134"

    I noticed quite a few threads about this and I hope it helps someone.
    I did get my door handle fixed and see that it is a common problem. My service advisor explained that this is a common problem also, but that the painted handle assemblies were less prone to breaking.

    Be safe.

    Im not sure what year models are involved. Ive tried to look up the recall notice but cant seem to find a whole lot of information on it. My advisor told me that the recall was issued on October 25 so not much info is out there.

    Hrm, interesting. I, too, am curious on the model years. Let's start with your truck @dock420? What year is it? That'll at least narrow the playing field...

    Ok so it -could- be a NNBS-specific thing...

    Spoke to my dealer who advised me that the recall is for 2010, 2011 and some 2012. It was plant specific on the trucks. Hope it helps.

    I was hoping there was a similar recall for the 96 vortex 350 for their oil dipstick mine is no longer attached to the block.

    I hate it when my dipstick breaks...

    There has been a rattle in the dash area of my 2011 Silverado. I wonder if that is what it is? Anyway, going in for a oil change next week. We'll find out. Thanks for the info guys!
