The shift linkage may become sloppy due to the retaining bolts for the shift bracket loosening.
To fix this, look under the dash to the left of the brake pedal. The shift cable comes up from the floor on the left side- follow it to the top, where it connects to the shift bracket that bolts the column shifter. There are two torx bolts (t-27 size) that may be loose that retain the bracket to the column shifter. Tighten these bolts, check to see if the linkage has improved. You may need to readjust the shift indicator after this fix.

You have to remove the linkage from the wiper motor.

Manual or Automatic?? In either case, most likely the linkage. Manual, might be the syncronizer gear or low on lubricant.

Check the linkage from the gear selector (shifter) to the transmission. It may have come loose. If it's intact, check your transmission fluid level. If this doesn't fix the problem, then you'll have to have it towed to the shop.

Locate all the linkage points under the car and observe how they are binding and where they are binding. Lubricate the rubber bushings with Silicon spray ONLY.

There is no way to change gear ratios.

Most difficult shifting manual transmissions are caused by a clutch that either doesn't fully disengage, is warped or a pilot bushing is damaged.

My 1992 Eclipse is doing the exact same thing, someone told me it might be the transmission computer or just the wiring. Whatever it is, this is really starting to irritate me.

check the shift linkage from the dogleg to the transfer case.the bolt on the linkage may have come out causeing it not to lock it

The shift linkage has probably come loose. To fix with vehucle not running...put gear shift in park, block the tires so truck does not roll, and you must get under the vehicle and manually change the shift lever to park position on the transmission. Once you do this you must tighten the bold on the linkage rod so that it no longer slips.

This might be a very simple fix - check the wiper arm linkage for having come disconnected. See "Related Questions" below for detailed instructions on accessing the linkage.

your gear box has broken This means that your synchro's are shot. The plates that connect together while in gear. I had this happen on my 1992 Escort Hatchback, 1.9L 5spd Manual. Was expensive to fix, so i just sold it, and bought a 1996 Wagon.. 1.9L.

Yep, had the ball joint go on the wiper linkage closest to the motor, only way to fix it seemed to be replacing the linkage but they are pretty hard to find in breakers yards. Ebay had them though.
