Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
I am having a few issues with my vehichle. If I am coasting down a hill my car will make a whirring sound and the rpm's will drop. If I hit the gas hard I will exprience a violent clunking sound that very scary. In order to re engage the tranny you have to lightly hit the gas. ASlso if I park my car on a slight incline reverse will not work. I am able to roll backwards and then put it in drive. I have been reading other posts from people and am not sure if it is the transfer case or the transmission.

it could be the sensors on the transmission itself or the torque converter I would take it to a place that is highly recommended and see what they have to say

I agree with duane_wong on this one ( not like he was looking for my approval :) ), it sounds like a problem with the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) on that side.
Quick test, when you are in 4H ( or 4L ) does the noise still happen ?
I would say cracked vacuum line to the IWE, or a problem with the vacuum diaphragm in the IWE. You can test by having the motor running in park, and in 2H, and check the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum. Make sure you test to the vacuum line, not the vent line ( ends in the engine compartment, not hooked to anything )
This is a block diagram of the IWE vacuum system

SOURCE: Hi I have a 2005
cannot be sure here without a on site inspection but i would hazard a guess and say the flex drive plate has broke around the crankshaft retaining bolts ,its a gearbox out job to repair ,the plate holds the torque converter in position to the engine crank ,Dont get this problem with a manual transmission
