OIL DIPSTICK IS STUCK

1997 Dodge Ram

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Dodge Ram V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

I went to check the oil in my 97 dodge pickup and when I went to put the dipstick back in it was really rough and kept getting stuck in the tube. It will only go so far into the tube. I took a wire and can slide it up and down the tube just fine. Is it the dipstick or is there rust or something else wrong?
