Question about 1997 Saturn SL
Ok, remove the console so you can look at the shifter, there is a plastic piece that attaches the cable to the shifter knob, this breakes, you can go to Saturn ,but they want almost $200 for both cables (they don't sell the plastic piece) BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS, Napa sells the plastic replacement part at a cost of $20 I am assuming that your car is a manual, part is fairly easy to install,(remove the shifter without removing the cables)

That model has shifter cables which could be the problem

The problem is most likely the gearshift linkages (as you suggest), external to the gearbox.
Get the linkages checked before looking further.
