Loose gear shifter, have a hard time finding gears. how do i fix

check the bolts on the linkage going from the column to the transmission. probably just need tightening. (generally the bolt ON the transmission shift plate that connects into the transmission shaft is loose) Probably takes a 10 mm socket

I have a 94 lincoln town car.The gear shift wont go into gear. Nothing but play in the whole linkage

look under the hood on the firewall where the shift linkage comes through, the most likely cause is the rod popped off and needs to be re attached

Im going to buy a lincoln but i am sceptical because when you go to put in park you you have to slam it or it wont go into park how much does it caust to fix that?

It may just be a linkage adjustment OR maybe worse. Have a shop or transmissionn shop check it for you, whatever it costs, it will be less than a headache over a used car with a bad trans.

Car wont go in gear

you have a problem with posibly witht he adjustment on you neutral switch. the transmission has this to prevent starting in gear. it obviosly works fine in newtral so it needs to be adjusted or the lever on your transmission needs adjust ment to allow this sensor to do its job
i hope this helps
