So, here is more or less what happened :<p>the spring mechanism in my key went a while ago, so the flip out key doesn't really stay anywhere, it just flops around. As a result, the part with the buttons hangs downward.<p>Tonight, I was driving home without shoes (they got soaked earlier), and was sitting a bit further up to the pedals. When I was coming to the first red light, my knee flipped the part of the key hanging down, and I noticed the headlights shut right off. Instinctively, I put it right back into ignition.<p>The car jerked forward a bit, gauges and headlights came back on, and it seemed ok... until I tried to change from 4th gear. (auto-stick, I should add)<p>I kept hitting down, and finally it went straight from 4th to 2nd... tried going back up, same thing, jumped to 4th. Went to D, and it stayed as "4"... same with neutral. Came to a stop, put in reverse and park, and the gauge display still read 4th gear. <p>I shut the car off, turned it back on, and everything seemed fine. Here's the part that concerns me now; Every time I let my foot off the gas, the car jerks. If I try to downshift to brake, or just let off the gas to slow down, it just seems to be jerking back a lot harder than before.<p><br>I'll have the car up on a hoist tomorrow anyways with the wheels off, checking out a few other things, and now this too.<p>Anybody have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
