lol, a friend said there is a couple of bolts under the colum that might be loose, we did do the heater core, had to drop the colum, i wonder, we were drinking beer[15]

On my superduty theres 2 torq head screws up under the dash that come loose and screw up te shifter.
Ive had to tighten them twice.

Lay on your back and look up under dash .They are gold good sized torque bolts , you will know them when you see them.
Only ones like it up there on superdutys so yours might be the same.

A lot of them the part the column shifter runs in breaks apart
Ford used the same part in a lot o cars and trucks
Have used Taurus shifter in f350 tow truck bolts right in
