My car is a 1995 Lincoln Town Car Signature series. 142,000 miles. The transmission selector has become mushy/loose. It no longer can be put in park which means I have to start it in neutral. Then I pull the lever way to the right to put it in drive, to "1." Once it's in gear, I put it a little to the left in the proper places (drive). The backlight is correct when it is in drive, meaning it does line up. The last few weeks, it won't go into reverse. I am thinking a part is worn in the steering column. Has this happened to anyone else?
