The linkage rod from the outside column to the transmission selector came loose at the trans selector you will need a wrench and go under and set it back up for proper operation of all gears

The linkage from the column to your transmission may be the cause .
Put them together and try again .Look underneath your car where the steering wheel is towards the front a little make someone shift the gears and you watch what happens .You may be able to see it where the problem is .It may be a pin that fell on the ground.

Clutch issues

This is a hydraulic clutch, meaning you push fluid to make the clutch move just like the brakes.
I would check the clutch master cylinder first to see if it is full of fluid.
The master or slave cylinder could have failed, among other things.
Grinding gears means the clutch disk is not moving.

Horn repair at steering colomn

the center section where the horn button is should slide out with some resistance. then one large nut holds the steering wheel on usually accompanied by 2 or 3 small bolts to hold the horn actuator down. it takes a gear puller to actually remove the steering wheel. as for the steering column itself it's a conglomeration of lag screws and plastic covers.

Broken shifter cable, how do i repair it

Put park brake on or block wheels, and shift into neutral (if possible), If not go to tranny and pop the cable off the tranny lever (pry off with screwdriver). Turn tranny shift lever, until it clicks twice, leave here for later adjustment. Follow the cable to the adjuster, pull out the flat steel retainer clip, pinch the sides to remove cable from bracket. Remove upper covers below the steering wheel. Remove kick panel below steering colomn. Remove cable from steering wheel shifter assembly (pry off and remove clip same as at tranny). Remove the side kick panel and follow cable along floor. You may find it easier to remove the driver seat (4 nuts on floor and wiring). Pull cable thru floor and replace. Reverse procedure to install. Lock the cable and clip at steering colomn, but leave the clip off at tranny. The tranny should still be in neutral. Now turn key to run and shift the shifter into neutral. At the tranny side cable there is a white square button, press in and lock cable to lever. install retainer clip. move shifter thru ranges and ensure it locks in park. Readjust if needed by pressing button and moving shifter lever on tranny.

Steering wheel moves 1/2 inch to the side

It sounds like the upper steering colomn bowl is loose. The bolts come up from the bottom and hold the lower portion of the steering wheel cover to the upper. The steering shaft runs down thru the middle of both. If loose the steering wheel will rock side to side in the upper bearing race, not holding the shaft tight or straight. Its actually easier to remove the entire steering colomn, turn upside down and tighten. Remove the lower steering shaft at the firewall (mark the spline alignment). Disconnect the electrical connections at the lower colomn. Disconnect shifter (if not floor console shifter). Unbolt from dash and remove the entire colomn, with wheel attached. Flip over and chek the lower bolts for tightness. It can be done from disassembling the colomn, but its a lot of work and lots of little pieces to loose.

I have a 2003 Chevy Impala, automatic. It drove fine all day and last night when I went to leave a friends I went to put it into drive, nothing, the shifter can be pushed in to all the gears and it wont go...

That is true. I could be a simple as that breaking off. Had that happen to my Mazda 626 just this past winter. Thought it was a 1700 dollar fix and it ended up being a 26 dollar fix.

Subaru will not go in to gear was work fine and then jusy stop going into gear

Check your shift linkage. If your shift linkage got out of place it would be possible that you cannot shift into gear.
