Dipstick seal


Under the car the other day and I noticed that the area where the dipstick mates with the engine was stained with oil, to cut along story short I've discovered that I can basically lift the dipstick guide tube in and out the engine with no resistance, it's just metal on metal, I've bodged it using some high heat silicone for now but I'd like to fix it properly, is there a special seal used or compound?

I'm sure you can get the seal as a separate part inexpensively. Have a look on eper.
