Check the fluid level to start. It might be the Z link if all of the gears are out. That part could get disconnected suddenly. This link has more information: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=155599

Probably not.

As stated, check the transmission fluid level.

The next step is to drop the pan. Check the Z link, and see if there are any broken parts in the pan.

So what you're saying is that the vehicle is able to move in 4LO but not 4HI or 2WD?

If that is true, then its a transfer case problem. The transfer case isnt being properly engaged in 2WD or 4HI, perhaps broken (or bent) shift fork and so on.

There's really nothing to dissasembling a transfer case.

Though the thread below is for the BW-4405, dissasembly should be pretty much the same so you might want to read it over just to familiarize yourself with the procedure and get an idea of what sort of tools is required:
