    You can probably get one at a GM dealer.

    Im sorry I should have said that I have 2 dip sticks, the one from the car and the one from the truck witch wont work of course. The problem is once the engine and trany are bolted in the car [motor mount bolts, bellhousing bolts, drive train shit secure, they dont move and you cant remove or install trany dip stick on a 2000 Trans Am. Or If you can I dont Know how

    You meant the whole shebang (tube and stick). I thought you just misplaced the dipstick.

    Solly Challie, but I believe you SOL...

    Then again, I'm no expert...

    LOKAR makes those flexible dipstick tubes. That might be your best bet. otherwise you might have to remove the transmission to get the tube up into place.

    Any chance you can simply remove the trans x-member and tip the engine and transmission down a bit to make space?

    I don't think that'll do it because then you can sneak it up past the cylinder head. I think you'd have to remove the transmission.

    Just a thought. I know I'd be trying before pulling the transmission out. That's part of the reason I write myself notes as I go on a big job - reminders to do certain things before I get to the point I can't or just to make sure they get done.

    Its a good thought! I certainly would have looked into also. But I've had major troubles with dipstick tubes in full sized trucks so I bet its impossible in a f-body

    It is impossible with the trans in the car. The trans has to be removed and lowered, dipstick installed, and the entire unit lifted back up into the car.

    i think your f-ed as far as install....unless you pull the tranny.

    as far as where to get one, id suggest a scrap yard or GM dealer....

    I had a mishap with an oil dipstick last year, thats the only place i could get another.

    I just want to point out that this is not how you'll get helpful information here usually. I also think you've about maxed out your revmax links for one person so maybe chill on the links and pimping your unproven unknown converter until you have time slips or something other than opinion to post.
