It will go into gear before you start the car...i had to replace the ignition key cylinder, because the girl i bought the car off of lost the keys....so i had to drill out the old one.so it wasnt an easy fix....i endeed brakeing the tail shaft of the old cylinder inside the colom....and had to take the gear looking thing out...that turns the car on, and starts it. i gues i just cant get the gear back in right.
