I had a new ignition key cut and they identified the micro-chip (supposedly?), and when I go to use the key it cranks but never turns over and the shifter cannot be put manually into neutral. Did the locksmith not id the correct micro-chip?

'87 would say Inspect the engine and transmission mounts...they have had a reliable life..time to see if they are still holding up the show...a floorjack with a woodblock would show the separation...would account for the lack of shifter control~
