If the shifter is very loose the your link may have come off or broke off the lever. If automatic you can put in drive by shifting the lever on the transmission. Do this only if it is safe to do so

I agree with Michael, you can do that but as he said, it can be, no, IS dangerous. Do NOT do that unless you have somebody with their foot on the brake. Do not be alone.

I'm not sure I think I might have the same problem. I have a 2009 jeep grand cherokee I'll start it up and drive sometime days and sometimes hours and when I come to a stop and and go to drive it seem to be in low gear cause it will struggle to go over 20 mph and the gear box wont move to 1 2 3 4 on dash I can move the shifter to P R N AND back to D. When I turn the car off and start it back up again it works just fine.
