    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?

    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...

    If you cant find it, then you might have to pull the engine.

    It may even be in the tube. I would take it out before trying to dig it out of there though.
