Yes there is an adjustment but it normally doesn't go out of adjustment, what usually happens is the shift lever becomes loose at the base of the steering column. If you look up under the dash, just above the steering column there is a bracket that holds the shift cable, there are (2) torx bolts that come loose allowing the shift cable to float around, they are a torx bolt, size 30, check to see if these are loose and let me know.
