Why has the gear stick all of a sudden become very loose and doesn't select the right gear?

You've probably disconnected one of the selector cables. They position the gearbox selector arm and need to be tensioned correctly.

I have a 02 kia sportage and the stick shift is extremely loose.. .. so I need repair and might have linkage problem is their a stick I can get and repair it..and a movie to show how to...

If the gear selector stick is too loose and wobbles around without falling into a click position, then it is possible that the gear box has issues and this might need professional help with equipments to remove the gear box and reset. It can be due to wearing off in the gear box , fault in selectors, counters and play in shaft bushes.
You will need to remove to confim the worn out components before an overhauling is needed.

Gear link or box problem

Sounds like a piece of linkage came loose. If it were an internal tranny problem, doubtful that the stick would be loose. Examine all linkage for something very obvious.

Tilt steering seems to be loose on 1985 jeep cherokee

I've had a loose steering wheel/column on my Chevy S10 a few times, and each time I had to take off the steering wheel and take out some of the guts to get to the loose bolts, they were still hard to reach and i could really only tighten one really good, if you take pics as you go you won't forget where each thing goes :)

Shifter sloppy, having trouble getting it into gear.

There is a bracket with two torx screws that gets loose. You need to tighten that. You will need to remove the plastic and metal shield under the dash, above the brake pedal to see the bracket. Look up above the brake pedal and wiggle the the shift lever and you will see what needs tightened. Worked for me.
