go. who might i have help me? mechanic..........lock smith..........auto

an auto locksmith should be able to repair your ignition
sounds like the spring retainer in your IGN may have let go
if that's not the problem ?
the problem could be in your column.
ya need to check the ignition cylinder first, to narrow it
is the trans in park?
could also be slack in the shifter cable.
I wouldn't say its a job for a mechanic.
if its the ignition switch? it more likely is, a locksmith
can repair it.
a mechanic will replace it.
an ignition that's been repaired will probably last longer
then a new one.
I know that sounds weird but at the factory a machine crimps
down the spring retainer. I have seem hundreds come loose in
the first 6 months. when its hand crimped down, it is more
secure and has a far lees chance of letting go.
