Broken oil dipstick tube?

I was checking the oil in my 94 V6 yesterday and i noticed that the tube felt loose and felt like it was going to break. I have a feeling that it is rusted through and will break off pretty soon. Is there any way to replace this? or do I need to do something else about it? thanks in advance

I hope this helps. I had to replace my dipstick tube from the 2.9L engine I had in a bronco ii. I went to the junk yard and pulled one out of an explorer. The tube just pulls out. although you will have to pull very hard and maybe give it a few twists left and right. it might be wise to put the new one in the frezzer to help when you are putting it into your truck.
