Why is the gear shifter really loose?

Asked by Jun 01, 2013 at 05:25 PM about the 1990 Lincoln Town Car Signature

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1990 Lincoln Towncar one day would not start at all, also the gear shifter was really
loose. I googled it and was told it might be the linkage, so I checked that and replaced the
second bolt that was missing but the shifter is still loose HELP!!!!!!!

may be that gray one? gotta look at what you have, and with a mechanic's prybar separate and look at the condition of the rubber~
