how do i change the shift linkage? on 1993 Lincoln Town Car

the car runs good just the shift lever is loose and only shifts into nutural and drive.

Asked by for the 1993 Lincoln Town Car
The most common problem is the aluminum shift tube in the steering coulumn breaks.
There also is 2 torx headed bolts that hold the shift lever at the base of the column that come loose or fall out.
You can check this by watching the base of the column where the cable is hooked up. Wiggle the shift lever, and watch to see if the cable moves at the same time as the lever.
If the bolts are loose, tighten them and try again.

If they do not move in unison,and the bolts are tight. The shift tube is broken in the column. It is also common for the bushings the tube rides on to be bad.

Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website
and get an online repair manual subscription. There are two companies that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores and much cheaper than the factory manual try Alldata which is very easy to navigate or Mitchell on line and get an online repair manual subscription.
Patrick's advice is excellent - great resources to utilize.

I think you'll find there is a linkage adjustment both at the top of the steering column and at the transmission itself.
yes how do i fix the problem
