was driving today on the highway when i hear a weird clunk then the speed just drops all the sudden, and i coast over to the side of the road and the explorer had died, i turned it over and it immediatly started up and idled just fine but when i put it into gear and tried to drive away it just revved and wouldnt move, then when i put it in neutral and left slowly off of the clutch pedal the rpms slowly went down like i was in gear then it just died, any ideas?

Muncie shifters on GM product used to do this from time to time. Usually when put in gear at stop and when shifted from third to forth.

The linkage would get in a bind when the spacers would wear. They would not shift out of a gear and when in neutral, they were in one forward gear and reverse at the same time. That is why they died when the clutch was engaged in neutral.

Check to see if the linkage has come loose on one of the shifter arms. The fix on the GMs was to put a 9/16 wrench on the nut that holds the linkage to the tranmission, there should be two, and click it back in place.

The only way to stop future issues is to shift to neutral, shake the stick, and then go on to the next gear.

Hope this helped.

I just looked at my Haynes manual and realize that the shifter in these vehicles are not like the ones I was reffering to.

It still sounds like the same issue, but the linkage is internal.

Sorry.
