I have an 88 Toyota Cressida and the auto gear selection lever in the centre console is loose. It can be wobble from side to side. Is there a way to tighten this lever by accessing some type of screw or bolt on the lower part of the lever inside the centre console.

Check the coupler,sometimes the rubber wears out prematurely;then investigate the cause of the deterioration,Chect the frimness of the connection right near the trans assemble.....Bushings take almost forever to wear out,a loose or damaged coupling will cause your problems...
I suspect that the insulator that seals the selector lever to the floor and the lever inside the car is allowing engine heat ,road heat to enter the cab past the gear lever. IT is common problem if the insulator rots or is not replaced after gear box removal say for clutch replacement.
gear change cable has either come loose or broke one or the other and you can only buy the cables as a pair and around 200euro mark ,not difficult to change but dealer only part so expensive although all the cables used on these cars are actually made in england around basingstoke area if i remember rightly ,best advice is to ask a local mechanic to have a look to confirm my diagnosis
It will have the answer in the owners manual but if you have a auto shift pattern that allows you to move the lever side ways from drive all this does is by pass the auto sequence and locks the box in the gear you have selected until you select the change. Like fixing the gear in a low gear so that you can go down steep inclines and use less brake letting the engine do the work Check it out at a dealer any way
Under the car on the on the gear shift lever is a spring this spring is ether missing or broken. Get under the car look in between the drivers seat area and the shift mechanism, maybe part of the spring is still hanging there. If not go to a local auto salvage yard and try to see where they fit.
You don't state if it is automatic or manual. For the manual:
Looking forwards down the car towards the engine the gear box has three levers on its left hand side. The lever at the rear of the engine is for gear 5 and reverse. From this lever there is a link (metal rod) running back to beneath the gear stick. To adjust this link you need to put the car on a ramp and unclip the link from the gearstick mechanism (three levers side by side). Do not unclip all the links at the same time as it is not obvious which link goes back on which lever!! The clevis on the end of the link can be adjusted by rotating it to either shorten it or lengthen it. There is a locking nut behind the clevis to set the adjustment when completed. Lubricate and clip the link back in place.
The 'wobble in reverse' sounds like either a) broken link on the back suspension b) worn subframe bushes c) loose differential mounts (two bushes at the back and one bolt into the subframe on the left/front.
If you car is automatic sorry for all this manual stuff, but I would still check out the mechanics of the rear end. Also check out transmission fluid levels, low levels lead to slippage within the torque converter. Another good indication of low fluid is gutless performance coupled with poor fuel economy !!
