ok I have a 91 taurus and recently I was driveing it and I felt a shudder and now none of the gears work, I am wondering what the possible failures are in this case. what is the most likely thing that screwed up?

Clutch pack failure would be a first guess. I'm afraid it's terminal. Time to pony up for a rebuild/replacement.
When it goes like you describe, usually metal fragments go throughout the system, including the cooler. Make sure you back flush it and the lines at the very least. Ford usually recommends a radiator/tranny cooler replacement at the same time the tranny is replaced. I've seen too many go bad because there was still metal in the cooler and it washed back through and trashed a new tranny!
