1996 SL
Default shifter stuck can get into 1 or 2

My daughter has a 1996 Saturn SL 5 speed and the shifter has moved over to the left. We can no longer shift into 1 or 2. we can shift into 3 to start but i'm sure that is not a good thing to do. We only bought this a month ago and she learned to drive a manual on this car. I think it may be linkage or a cable, but my husband thinks that she burned up the clutch. Any opinions on this?

It's not the clutch, then it would be easier to get into gear. Linkage or hydraulics, maybe a cable.

Is the shifter loose going side to side and firm going front to back?
