I went ahead and bought two at the dealer. Shape is the problem not the size/threads. The new ones from the dealer have Loctite already applied. $2 to $3 apiece!

2002 Ford Escort gear shift is locked and the brake light switch is good. What else can be the problem?

There is a small plug in the console forward of the shifter. Pop that out and insert a thin screw driver, you'll feel a springy resistance. Push it down and see if you can move the shifter. If the shifter will still not move, with the car on level ground, the parking brake full on, and the wheels blocked remove the shift cable from the tranny and see if you can shift the tranny with the lever. If you can, your cable is frozen. If you can't, you're looking at tranny repair.
