I own a 1994 Ford Probe a it runs great just! It is my first manual car and I noticed that even when I am in gear the stick shift can be moved easyily back and forth. Is there something wrong?

got celica?

an inch or so of free play is nothing unusual.

My probe did move a fair amount. A small amount is acceptable.....if it is excessive, there are plastic bushing that are between the shifter and the linkage that wear. I replaced them and that solved the problem.
