Explorer won't move in drive at first

Check transmission fluid level. If level is ok, may need new filter and tranny fluid.

Transmission clunks when shifting into reverse after initially starting the car.

It has a worn or broken rear engine mount most of the torque is absorbed in the front mounts and hanger mounts except when it is shifted into reverse.

My explorer drives fine no trans noise it shifts good, but when you first put it in drive it takes a few seconds to engage any idea?

low transmission fluid level is main culprit,handbrake on start engine then select reverse and check oil level .The second main problem is a worn front clutch inside the gearbox which will involve stripping the gearbox to renew the clutch plates

Slight hesitation then a clunk when I hit the gas

Usually a "clunk" when you put it in drive or reverse, might indicate a U-joint needing replaced.
Hope this helps...

99 ford won't go into reverse and makes a clunking noise this started a few days ago and all fluids are topped off.

You mean you can put it in reverse and it won't go? or the shifter won't move into the reverse position? If you're putting it in R and it won't go, then it's an internal tranny issue.

Engine runs vehicle wont move Possible ring gear? 84 Topaz

Is it a metal shaft? When you put it in drive does it make any noise? Does the speedometer move? Does it make a loud clicking sound when you put it back in Park?
