All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...

Have you hooked this up to an OBD11 reader yet ?
May be a bad crank, cam or knock sensor. Cars today are loaded with sensors.
If you don't read the codes you will be chasing the rabbit down the hole. ;-)
Hope this helps

There is no belt tensioner for this model. these run with strech belts. The new belt has to be fitted with a special tool, which some motor factors supply with the new belt kit. To remove the old belt you simply cut it. But fitting the new belt is a bit fiddley if you have never done the job before.

these are pressed in wheel bearing assemblies. axles need to be removed out of the spindle and either a special tool to do it on the car needs to be used or the entire spindle removed and carefully pressed in and out. if you so choose to take this venture on i would suggest taking the spindle off by removing the brake caliper, rotor, axle nut, 2 bolts for the strut, lower ball joint, and tie rod. once this has been done and the pieces are in your hand take it to some place like napa or a local repair shop and pay them to do the press work.
