Q: 1) Ignition not turning unless key jiggled
2) Not switching into 3rd gear on 2003 Saturn Ion

The ignition doesn't want to turn when I start the car until after I jiggle it a number of times. It also doesn't want to turn off until I jiggle the gear shift several times.

It just started not switching into 3rd gear.

Check to see if your key looks worn. If so, try a new key and see if that works better. If your key is worn and you don't have a spare, have a new key made using the factory key codes. Don't simply have a copy made of your worn out key.
