FORD EXPLORER SHIFTER PROBLEM

1997 Ford Explorer • 80,000 miles

This is a v 6, 5 speed standard. Backed it up to the garage and parked it.A few days latter when I went to leave, no gears, any deriction. Can place easy in any gear with out using the clutch, no grinding. The shifter is going threw the motions but the gears arnt engaging. Its like the shifter forks are not there, but you can feel the dents for all the gears. Pulled the stick out, looks good to me. Could the revers shifter disconect the shift linkage some how?

Sounds like the clutch has failed.
