Sounds like the splines and or the "C" ring is damaged. Under normal circumstances the axle should snap into place firmly. Remove the axle and examine it. With a little luck only the axle is damaged and you can replace the axle with a rebuilt one.

What is wrong if 1998 ford explorer will start but won't move when shifted into any gears?

First, check the tranny fluid when the SUV is off and cold. Then check the tranny fluid after the SUV is warmed and idling. The level of tranny fluid level should go down, if it doesn't the tranny itself is not taking up any. Replacing the tranny fluid filter may solve your problem. If not its most likely the tranny oil pump. This is if your fluid level stays the same when warm or, cold. If the tranny fluid changes from cold to warm, your tranny has a more serious problem and should be looked at by a pro.
