If your problem is what I'm thinking there are screws down at the bottom of the shift linkage that have worked loose. I've tightened mine twice now. (used loctite the second time) Just get under the dash and follow the shift linkage down to the floor. You'll see what I mean. Mine has torx head screws. Can't remember the size.
