Check for play in the shift lever and linkage. If is shows signs of play or looseness adjust it, or, perhaps it lacks or has too much lubrication at the joints and friction points.

Will a loose tooth tighten back up?

I think it depends on how loose it is. My baby hit me in the mouth with a headbutt when he was 2 or 3 and mine was loose. After a few days it had tightened but was still a bit loose and remained that way for years. When it did finally tighten up, I had a gap between my teeth that had not been there before. It happened suddenly, like maybe in the course of a couple of weeks, after years of being a bit loose.
