Remove steering column shroud(cover)and tap ignition barrel with small hammer while twisting key backwards and forwards,also turn steering wheel backwards and forwards sometimes this is enough to release key as the locking pins in barrel and the steering lock pin do sometimes jam.You will have to remove steering column shroud to replace ignition barrel if tapping/hitting it doesnt work anyway so its not a wasted effort.Good luck,let me know how it works out

The filter is inside the transmission. You need to take the pan off the bottom then you can replace the filter and the pan gasket.

Had this problem with our 2006 Colbalt LS and it is the shifter. Key would not come out. Will have to replace the shifter. That's going to be a bill unless you have a powertrain warranty. Was over $600.-00 at the Chevy dealership we have to use.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery
