Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you have a shift linkage issue and a manual transmission. If the shifter moves freely in a circle with no resistance then the shift cables are almost certainly detached either from the shifter or the transmission.

Does the shifter feel as if nothing is attached and moves freely?
