ive got a 2001 ga auto and the shifter has some "play" in it. it will move back and forth 1/2 to a 1/4 inch in any gear, is this normal?

Mine does the same thing. I think it's normal. As long as the gear doesn't change itself, don't worry about it.

As long as you can't actually shift it with your foot off the brake then it's nothing to worry too much about. I had an '89 Dodge Daytona that I could shift into any gear without pressing the brake, definitely not good. So if you can't do that, you're fine.
