    my transmission has been acting up. it used to be real clean and sturdy shifting but one day when i went to shift it slid into gear very easily and you can move the stick around a lot while its in gear. when shifting it seems like you can moved it a lot before it goes into the next gear (almost hittin the dash when going into 3rd) its just very loose and sloppy. it happened about 2 days after i changed my oil maybe that had somethin to do with it.
    any help without goin to the dealership would be great.

    It may be the shifter bushings.

    there is a white bushing that the ball sits in (opposite end of the shifter). sounds like this plastic bushing is gone
