    Any tips? I have headers installed. Everything is all painted and pretty.
    Plyers are not moving it all.

    Spray it with penetrating oil first. Then wrap it with a cloth so you don't damage it with a pliers. Using the pliers and your hand gently rock and twist it while pulling upward. If you are lucky, it will start to move.

    I went on You Tube to research it and all the tips were for removing a broken one.
    Well guess what, I broke it off. Seems they break pretty damn easy.

    After allot of cussing I used a #6 easy out. Did the trick.
    New one is installed.
    The previous owner installed a Passenger side dipstick instead of a drivers dipstick.

    Thanks guys hope this helps.
    NOTE: for future reference a #6 easy out made it easy.
