Ignition key wont go into the ignition barrel very easy. I am = having difficulty getting the starter to turn .. I have to fiddle with = it for a few minutes. The key dosent want to turn into lock position = either (reverse gear enabled). The key seams to be ok in Park position = and pre-start position .. engine warning lights and buzzer comes on .. = but key just wont go any further to start engine. 2.)

Driver side windshield wiper stuck in 12 o'clock position and = wipes too far over. ? 5.) Gears very sloppy and hard to find .. no grinding or anything .. = just sloppy shift lever. 6.)
