    You need to put it back in...

    What exactly is giving you problems? Make sure the o-ring is on the tube, wipe a little oil around it with your finger, and insert. The hole is difficult to find, just stay persistant.

    I forgot to put mine back in at the proper time during the header install. Luckily I was changing oil at the same time and noticed before hitting the road. I fed the dipstick to someone under the car and got it back in place fairly easily.
