    It all depends on the bushings inside the shifter column. We can always diagnose the shifter operations and if the reason for the slippage or movement is due to a loose component, we will tighten and get you on the road. If its going to need parts to get it back to proper operations, an estimate will be given and you can tell us what to do from there.
