I ran into this problem, and discovered that i had a faulty front shaft speed sensor. The grinding I had was that the transfer case clutch packs were trying to lock up and engage the front wheel drive. Replacesment of the sensor has not fully rectified the situation though, as it still does it intermittently. It seems to do it at low speed turns and on acceleration. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but it could be. A scan of the computer can tell you if it is the issue though.

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.

DIsconnext and reconnect the linkage at the transmission. You may want top replace the linkage cable all together. Make sure you set the parking break and block the tires

Check engine light on? Sounds like a bad pressure control solenoid. If it is a bad PCS. You have to replace the solenoid block in the 5R55W transmission.

Yeah, same thing happened to a lot of folks. The transmission has a flaw that causes the 'stuck in neutral' syndrome. Ford will do nothing for you and will not even acknowledge that there is a problem. Check it out for yourself, there are hundreds of complaints posted on the internet and it's about a $2500 repair. Should have been a recall or at least a TSB. Ford has no desire to stand behind their product and repair/replace the faulty transmissions. Way to go and the thanks we get for 'buying American'.
