|Post a picture as suggested by one of the comments in your Tech post. This will help others with answering your question (although JustSomeToolInaVerTT did cover that answer pretty well).
1) What part exactly are you talking about that is "rounded out"? The dipstick or dipstick tube? In your response in tech, you said you'd need to get the car on a lift to take a picture - this leads me to believe you're talking about where the dipstick tube goes into the engine block.
2) Please describe what you mean by "rounded out" - forum readers' definition of this term may not be the same as yours. It sounds like you're saying that the inside diameter of the dipstick tube has been enlarged and is preventing a snug fit with the rubber portion of the dipstick. Is that what you are seeing?
Any additional details you can provide will be a big help with assisting you on this issue.
back to life soon.....
There can never be enough TT's in the family.
