I have an 08 explorer 4x4, when I put it in 4 auto or 4 high it's like it's in neutral in all gears (wont move) then I put it in 4 low and it KICKS in and works fine, so it only moves in 4 low, if I push 4 auto or 4 high it does nothing but rev up when I hit the gas in all gears and when I put it in park it grinds as if I was moving

not being there to try to drive it, I can't be certain, but It does sound transmission related, I say that because you said that it grinds in park like its trying to move. although that's not to say there isn't a tcase problem as well. just did one, towed in would barely move, except when flooring the thing, trans was burnt up and chain was stripped in the tcase. but it would move better in 4lo. this was a bush truck they buried in the mud and had 300k on it, but that's not my point. might be wise to take it to a transmission shop or at least one that is good with drive train.

Well finally I took off the transfer case and it was all chewed up inside, so i bought a used one from the bone yard and everything is wonderful again
