2001 Caravan. Very hard to change from park to any other gear. Selector very loose when pulling down to shift but very hard to get it to stop at a specific gear. Then it is almost impossible to put back into park without a hard jamming. Is there a bracket maybe that is supposed to hold the selector in place as it seems very loose once it is moving?

Check on the side of the transaxle where the cable attaches to the transmission. It sounds like the bracket, lever, or ball may be loose.
