First off,check for any play in the bushes either end of the gear selector that runs between the gear stick and the bottom of the gearbox.If nothing obvious is present there,then check the gearbox oil level.There is a plastic wing nut headed bolt on the front of the 'box.Remove it and with the car on level ground you should have oil trickling out of it.If not,top the oil up with 75w80 gear oil.

It might also be worth changing the gear oil as over time the oil can break down and cause selection problems.

If none of the above helps your situation,then it's time to suspect a fault inside the gearbox.......
