Either the linkage bolt is loose, or the ball on the selector shaft
Jack up and support the front of the car, remove the driver's wheel
and look for the arm where the selector rod attaches to the
transmission rod- there will be a curved arm with a ball that
connects to the shifter linkage. Have a helper move the shifter and
while you watch the movement of the ball...if its moving in
relationship to the arm, it needs to be removed and either welded to
the arm or replaced.
The R&R is doable from jackstands, but easier of course from a lift.
