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!!!!!!!
