It can be drilled directly in the center with a 1/2 in bit and just short of the depth of the cylinder. I usually put blue tape around the bit so i know when the bit is deep enough.

I have a 93 caddilac fleetwood and the injectors

Both Injectors? If not, then just replace the one that is leaking. If they are both doing it, then check the computer or for faulty wiring. When the key turns on the fuel pump comes on, If an injector is stuck open then it will dump fuel into the engine as it is doing. If they are both doing it then something is telling it to, thus computer or wing problem.

1995 dodge caravan key stuck in ignition. No electrical / power

I had this problem. I called AAA. They sent over a locksmith who took out the cylender and did something to it removing the part that sticks (time elapsed, five minutes) Now it turns easily but once the car is turned on the key doens't need to be in the ignition at all! I have to be careful when I leave the car the ignition is in the right position or it can drain the battery. I always warn garage attendants when I leave the car. (tho apparently this is common) So this is a quick and easy fix. Just get a locksmith. Use your AAA because they will give you a discount. It only cost me fifty bucks.

How do you remove an ignition from a 1997 GMC safari van?

If its just the Key and cylender, Remove airbag fuse and disconnect the yellow connector first if equipt..then the steering wheel with a puller..and then the metal steering wheel lock ring..Depress the ring first to remove the retaining ring and such ..note this is behind the airbag coil retained by a snapring..anyway remove the turn signal lever pulls out..then unscrew the 4 way flasher knob with a phillips screwdriver, then the 3 phillips screws in the white switch assm pull that forward enough to remove the torxs screw on the upper r/h side and the key and cylender should come out..Now if its just the Ignition switch you are talking about..Drop the steering column down enough to access the switch on the top..good luck.

Need to change key cylender/ignition

the airbag, steering wheel and lock ring have to be removed to access the key cylinder. in addition to common hand tools you will need a steering wheel puller and a lock ring remover, under the airbag is the clock spring which allows the wiring for the airbag to rotate. be very careful not to rotate the clockspring or you will break the wires inside. after removing the steering wheel and lock spring you should be able to see how to remove the key cylinder, usually a bolt, screw, or clip

Help me please

some times when the steering wheel locks... the ignition cylender will lock. you can try this... when trying to turn the key apply a turning pressure to the steering wheel... sometimes the combination of the two, will unlock the steering wheel and the cylender.
