I have a 2001 Saturn sc2 and i was reading the driver's manual about this because I had trouble too., It seems as though the car as steering lock where if if turn your steering wheel a certain way, then it locks the key from being turned. All you have to do is turn the steering wheel a little and then turn the key. It should work!!

it is either the key is worn out or the key cylinder in the ignition is worn out.

Saturn is a gas giant, and does not have a surface to speak of.
Just try turning the steering wheel to one side or the other. Sometimes the ignition gets locked up in one direction and by gently turning it to either side while turning the key in the ignition will free it up. real common problem don't even waste your time with a new key im sure its worn out,im a licenced Saturn tech in st.catharines Ontario get a new key cut and get the ignition cylinder replaced,if you need more info contact me at email@example.com The tumblers are sticking. insert key and hit with a hard object to jar the tumblers loose. Then blow grafite into the key slot.
I changed my dashboard lights (lamps) on my 2002 Saturn L200, it's not that hard. I put complete directions with photos here:http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1347192/saturn/saturn200.htmlThe lamps are 2752MF.You can buy the replacement bulbs from "www.memotronics.com". The link is their EBAY store. I used "miniature light bulbs 2752MF" from them, worked fine.http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1347192/saturn/saturn200.html
Is the steering wheel turned hard against the lock? Try moving the steering wheel back and forth hard at same time turn key.
it has hard cover
The intake plenum has to come off to get at the coil. Is that parts and labour? If so it's VERY fair.
Saturn does not really have a surface. The only hard part of Saturn is its rocky core. The "surface" of Saturn is actually hydrogen and helium kept in a spherical shape by the planet's gravity.
Pull really hard!
Its pretty hard to measure, but I say about 10 Titans is as tall as Saturn
Some times you can just jiggle the steering wheel back and forth as your try the ingition. The problem is common with LS2 Saturn steering locks; the steering lock must be engaged for this to work. If it isn't, use the above method to get it to lock.Once the steering lock is engaged you turn the steering wheel hard to the right as you turn the key in the ignition. This will usually free the switch up. Saturn keys are made of a very soft material and wear down significantly over time. USE CAUTION NOT TO USE SO MUCH FORCE ON THE KEY or it could snap off in the ignition. The brute strength should be applied to the steering wheel, not the key!
It should be located somewhere on the steering column. Look below the ignition key tumbler assembly. You may have to drop the column down from the dash to access the module. Sometimes that is necessary and sometimes it is not. Just get under the dash near the column and take a hard look see. Exact location I do not know.

Check the ignition coil and the spark plugs in the Acura. It sounds like the engine is not getting enough fire to ignite the fuel.
Try lubricating it with some graphite powder and see if that helps. Spray it directly into the key opening. You may also have a key that is worn badly and needs replacing.Ignition lock cylinder hard to turnYour probably refering to the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition switch is behind your instrument panel. If your ignition lock is hard to turn try spraying some wd40 inside the lock. If this does not work have ignition lock replaced it is worn.
Saturn is one of the gas giants. As such it doesn't have a hard surface like Earth or Mars do.
plugs, wires, coolant temp sensor, fuel pump
sometimes you just fart to hard.. or your forcing it out.. sometimes you just fart too hard.. or you're forcing it out..
Sometimes an ignition coils will break down under heat and not fire properly. Start there and see if it helps. Billy
With your foot on the brake , try turning the steering wheel left and right. I know the steering wheel is locked but sometimes this will keep the key from turning. Just pull hard on the wheel hard left and right.
There is no such thing as a 1992 Saturn VUE. If your talking about a 2002, open the hood and look behind the radiator twords the right. Way down twords the ground the is a yellow dip stick. It's small and hard to reach and it is clipped on. Leave it to GM!
