Question about Cars & Trucks
Where shifter linkage bolts to the tranny has come loose-have one person move shifter in car while you watch the end of the cable that connects to the tranny-there should be a nut that holds it on- the car is probably in park so move the shifter to park and tighten it down- cheers Denny

I had the EXACT same problem on my 01 PT. Very easy and inexpensive fix. There is a bushing that is located under the air box under the hood. It is in the shifter linkage. It falls apart from the heat of the engine and age. Mine was completely gone! The dealership didn't sell the bushing itself, they wanted to sell the whole arm for $$! I found this place that sells polyurethane bushing that work great. They sell you two, one for under the hood and one under the console. I just replaced the one under the hood.
All you have to take off is the air box, press the bushing into the sleeve then press it onto the pin and you are done. This place sells them as race parts that gives you a tighter shift.

It's possible the tumblers have fallen in your ignition. I had a similar incident with a Focus I owned. Everything locked and I couldn't get the key to turn at all. They had to tow the car to the dealership and replace the tumblers.

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta
