I was at the gas station, and noticed my drivers side lock would move, but wouldn't stick in the lock position? How can I fix this?

Lubricate the mechanism.

It isn't hardly moving like its rough, though. More like something is blocking it from locking. And how do I get to the mechanism?

You've got to remove the interior door panel, might have to remove the glass too if it is in the way when it's rolled up all the way.

First use a liquid graphite lubricant for the key lock. Put your key in half way and drip the stuff onto your key, move it in and out and turn it multiple times to distribute the oil. If that doesn't fix the problem then you'll have to take the door panels off to get to the control rods and find out what's rubbing or getting hung-up. I'd use a white lithium grease for those.

This happened to me a few months ago. I doubt something is just blocking it, but it's possible. I would just go ahead and replace to door lock actuator. Its not too expensive at autozone. It's just the job that is a pain.

Probably this.
