Default 5 speed stick shift is loose

I just bought a 2006 PT Cruiser for my mom. When driving it to her house, the gear shift all of a sudden became completely loose. You could move it all around very easily. Can not change gears even though I was still in 3rd gear and was able to get it back home. Any help would be appreciated. I'm just glad it happened while I was driving it and not my mom.

Check cable ends the bushings go out sometimes. New bushings will fix. Cable may have come off completely.

Thank you so much! Can I get these bushings at a local auto store or is something I have to get from Chrysler?

There are some aftermarket bushings that are really durable made by "Booger Bushings". (Search 'em) They are sold by the maker and a few on-line sites for about $20/$30. Don't bother with the dealer parts because they probably only sell the entire shifter w/cables, etc. for hundreds of dollars.

I have a set of the stock bushings left over from when I upgraded that I can give you. If you want to do that, send me a private message with your address and I'll drop 'em in the mail.
