The shift linkage may become sloppy due to the retaining bolts for the shift bracket loosening.
To fix this, look under the dash to the left of the brake pedal. The shift cable comes up from the floor on the left side- follow it to the top, where it connects to the shift bracket that bolts the column shifter. There are two torx bolts (t-27 size) that may be loose that retain the bracket to the column shifter. Tighten these bolts, check to see if the linkage has improved. You may need to readjust the shift indicator after this fix.

Check the linkage from the gear selector (shifter) to the transmission. It may have come loose. If it's intact, check your transmission fluid level. If this doesn't fix the problem, then you'll have to have it towed to the shop.

Why did 93 ford explorer reverse stopped working even when gear shift says reverse truck only goes forward?

The shift linkage has probably come loose. To fix with vehucle not running...put gear shift in park, block the tires so truck does not roll, and you must get under the vehicle and manually change the shift lever to park position on the transmission. Once you do this you must tighten the bold on the linkage rod so that it no longer slips.
