Sticky steering column

Well i had to ask, i've been dealing with a tough steering column for some time now and finnally got around to wondering WTF the issue is.

Just as it says, its tough to shift the steering column. Also sometimes when i put it in reverse it acts like its out of gear. Not so much the tranny as it is the actual selector.

I know its a long shot, but any help ?

Check up under the dash. There's 2 brass looking torx head bolts that the heads face towards the firewall. They're probably loose. Mine is the same way but I'm too lazy to fix it

I forgot to tell you, they're a pain to get to. You have to lay your head right by the brake pedal and look up
