First you want to inspect where the linkage starts. It starts at the shift lever, so start there. you want to be looking for excessive slack, worn or frayed cables and fittings, corrosion and broken parts (obviously). If any of these exist, it might be just a matter of swapping it out for a new one. Just make sure before you go pulling on it you put the parking brake on or put some wheel chalks behind and in front of the wheels...

It depends on the type of transmission. If it is a manual transmission, the first thing to check would be the linkage. If the linkage is not the problem, then it could be the bushings or the synchronizer. If it is an automatic transmission, then it could be a problem with the bands, though you could have debris in the valve body or a servo problem. In some cases, linkage bearings could be an issue.
