I just want to get it started 1997 Saturn SL so i can drive it to the repair shop the key is stuck in ignition and will not come out or turn It is pulled into garage and can not get it towed

try this. tap on the end of the key; tapping in the direction of key insertion. Use a handle from a screwdriver to lightly tap on the end of the key. sometimes this will free up the lock enough to get it to turn.

Make sure the lock isnt binding because of the steering lock. You may have to pull hard over on the steering wheel and try to turn the key.

Well first you should put the key in the ignition and try turning the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. Next try moving the gear shifter back and forth while turning the ignition. sometimes they will inhibit the ignition from unlocking.

My ignition switch on a 95 chevy camero has locked up and wont turnsometimes if you giggle the steering wheel it will turn over but it has really jammed now

If you can remove the ignition lock assembly and take it to a locksmith they can rekey it for about $20.00.With age the pins in the lock will start ti jam.
