Very high probability an internal transmission problem.Check fluid level.Could be the torque convertor failed internally,or Low/Reverse band or servo.Remove transmission pan and look for any failed parts,metal chunks,etc..Scan for diagnostic trouble codes.Could hook a 0-300 psi pressure gauge,and do a line pressure test before removing pan.If line pressure is out of specification,internal problem.Good luck.

I was coming to a stop in my 98 Ford Explorer, after the stop i pressed the gas and heard aloud thump rite before my truck start coasting, when I put it in park, the gears sound like they where grinding,...

sounds like your transmission could be going out, have you checked the transmission fluid? Sometimes the fluid being low will cause gear slippage. other than that it could have a bad linkage.

How do you fix transmission? transmission over heated, blew out fluid. replaced the fluid,then move it. went forward some then nothing. wouldnt go reversed at all.

When the trans overheats and blows the fluid out of it, the trans has suffered damage, as you have found out by the no-movement you have now. You need to find a trans shop to have it rebuilt.

So I was driving my Ford Taurus 2002 down the street and out of no where the acceleration just stop. It idles fine, there was no indication the transmission was going out no noise no nothing, it work

Yes, usually do give some sign, but not always. Still it could be an electrical problem, rather than a mechanical faillure, since the shifts are electronically controlled. You probably need a shop or transmission shop to diagnose it.

On my '98 Ford Explorer, the 4WD Low light went on when i put it in high. Then i went to disengage it and the 4WD Low light won't got off, and now my car will barely accelerate

When you try to disengage the 4Lo, the transmission must be in neutral and your foot on the brake. If that doesn't work, try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes.
