Plastic oil hose broke in engine
While changing my RXP oil, 2 inches of the plastic drain tube that fits down the dipstick tube, broke off. I really don't want to pull the engine. What do you think will happen if I leave it in the engine?

Pull the intake manifold bolts tilt the mani then remove the dipstick tube.

I would pull the engine...
Debris getting lodged in a oil pump and seizing your engine would be way worse the the 2 hours it will take to pull the engine and fixed it right....
LookAt it this way....pull the engine and remove plastic tube....equals...some time and a 15 dollar gasket...
Or Ride it for a fews hours blow the engine...equals...month of down time and 2000 dollars...
