The manual transmission looks like it is slightly tilted to the right visually. I can also feel it in the stick, touching the shifthole side. Never dealt with something like this. Help please :(

Do you

Additionally the stick moves slightly right when starting to drive in 1st gear, and slightly left when going in reverse? Broken tranny mount?
