Need help again. So frustrated. I had the ignition switch replaced while getting my car inspected. My 07 cobalt (58,000 miles) seemed fine afterwards. It sat over the weekend and when I went to start it for work yesterday......same issues. Could start it after a bit with turning key to acc for 10 minutes a few times. When I got to work, turned the key off and pulled it out and my car kept running. I called a different dealer and they are talking about replacing the ignition barrel. I need your input about what is really the problem and what needs to be done. I'm sure the dealers have dealt with this problem many times I would think?? I'm not going back to that dealer because they lied to me about several things and they charged me more than I make in a month. I should have walked out before they worked on my car but was desperate to get the car repaired before winter. I also had the oxygen sensor replaced even though the check engine light never came on again. That was probably a fluke due to the intermittent electrical problems. (Female who knows nothing about cars and don't want to be a PITA to my son or brothers who have very busy lives). Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
