I'm pretty sure my ignition is breaking. Sometimes the key has a hard time going into it, and its really hard to even start it sometimes. Once about a week ago I was able to start it without a key :( .
If anybody knows how much one would cost to install one that would be great. Also if anybody knows if you can just buy one and install it yourself that would help too.
Thanks

The cylinder is pretty easy to change. It should be available at most parts stores for around $20 or so.

To change it, put the key in the ignition and turn it to the run position. Then, using a small punch or stiff wire, insert it into the small hole in the bottom of the steering column. Push up, and it'll release the cylinder. Then pull the cylinder out, and replace with the new one.
