Default Transmission Dipstick Soo Difficult to use! / 94 Camry

Hello everyone, New to the toyota blogs here...Any advice would be so
appreciated...Just got a very clean 94 Camry V6 w/ Auto transmission,
and as I am attempting to checking the Transmission Level--The dipstick
is very difficult to re-insert. It was easy to remove--but I can't
seem to put it in all the way...

Is there a special trick to putting it in?? When I do try to push it
in, it is loaded with pressure and wants to spring up an inch or
two...then when I go to pull it out, it is very difficult--as it snags
on the way out.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Any non-virgin shouldn't have any problems. Just work it in and out, until
you find the point of least resistance.

Thanks Sharx35. I appreciate your help--I finally did get it in, it
was just like you said--working it to find that 'elusive' point--but
kindof crazy compared to some cars--like our old Accord with a 4 inch
straight rod--and the only thing it touches is the rubber!!!

-resolved!
