My car has an automatic transmission.
It sounds like you are having a problem with your transmission's shifting mechanisms. Have the shift linkage checked to see if the cable bushings are worn out. A mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, can give your car's transmission an inspection to let you know if you need the shifter cable or bushings, or anything else, replaced.
