Had me an afternoon today....
So, I went to Elk Grove, and had my exhaust somewhat done...it's 2.25 true dual going all the way back to the rear of the car, with turndowns and a magnaflow X pipe, no mufflers yet.
So, I get out of there, head towards a friends house in Carmichael. Stop at the gas station to take a leak....get out of the car, get back in the car, put the key in, won't go in all the way...damn...ignition lock had been giving be trouble for a while...mess with it, pull it out put it in pull it out put it in, won't turn, won't go in all the way, then, the key won't come out. Finally I get it out, twisting the key a bit. Lock cylinder is all out of whack and key won't go back in.
Twist the lock cylinder a bit, get it to click back into alignment with itself. Key won't go in because it's tweaked. bend it back as best as I can, still won't go in.
Friend shows up with new lock cylinder & key from autozone. Looks like original but chrome instead of black. Realise that lock cylinder won't come out unless it's in "on" position, per instructions. Damn. Now what.
Friend grabs key, shoves it in ignition, pushes REAL hard, it clicks in, turns, car fires up.
I FEEL LIKE A MORON.
So, I need to change it, I have instructions, should I risk it? should I take it to the dealer?
