IF you need just the indicator and not the tube just go to a salvage yard and take one out from any 2.4L Matrix/Corolla/Vibe. Or get one new from a GM parts store online, price $12.89

or from Toyota for almost the same price

Thanks, I couldn't find any salvage yards around me that had a singe Matrix nor Vibe on ground, but I totally forgot about the Corolla.

I must really stink at internet searches, because I never found those two parts providers. Thanks for the links. Really appreciate it.

Just curios why you need a new one? Someone steal the original? Just bought the car and it was missing? Set it down and it got destroyed?

I bought it and then noticed it had a “Ford” dipstick. Feel kind of stupid for not noticing before but I’d feel better if I knew I had the correct length dipstick in this engine.

There is a universal dipstick available, if you don't have another correct dipstick to compare it to, then dump and refill the crankcase one quart shy of capacity and mark that level as the add mark, then put the rest in and mark it again as the full mark. https://www.google.com/shopping/product ...

Manual states 4.5 qts, but I thought there was a lot of discussion on this site that the manual wasn't correct. I filled it to just a hair over 4qts and plan on keeping an eye on it. I'll get the correct dipstick and use that fill level for the future.

Strike one on the GM parts giant...they voided my purchase stating the part was discontinued even though they have it listed.

Personally, I would just order the Toyota one on eBay.
