yes, thats exactly whats wrong, i'm 100% sure
i was in my driveway a couple weeks ago and went to put my truck in park, and it wouldnt go. the handle was extremely loose, so i drove it out to my dad's shop
he looked in the floorboard and there was a bolt laying there. I was like "that may be my problem" lol
so i guess it held the shifter cable under the column, i wasnt looking when he put it back
the shifter is so much firmer now, doesnt have any play at all
