i have a '95 Jeep Wrangler that I have been really happy with. Yesterday however, I was driving and it slipped into 4 wheel drive on its own. I had no idea what it was doing, so when I got home I had my roommate put the 4 wheel drive back in its neutral position. I tried to go out later, but it wouldn't drive in the normal gears. All it would do was gun the engine, so I just backed it into a parking space across from my house.
my friend's boyfriend said that it was the rear axle. it was dripping something apparently and that it had to be replaced...
my boyfriend said that it happened to him before with a GMC Jimmy and all he had to do was jack it up and spin the tires till the gears popped back into place.
Has anyone else had this happen?? What am I supposed to do with it? I can't drive it anywhere, so I would have to get it towed to a mechanic, and god only knows how much the mechanic would charge me. So, I'm trying to figure out if it's a simple solution my boyfriend can do or if I have to spend butt-loads of $$.
THANKS!

Your transfer case has 4 positions: 2WD, 4WD Hi, Neutral, and 4WD Lo.

If your roommate put the t-case in neutral, you won't ever go anywhere as power is never getting applied to the wheels. You would want to push the t-case shifter towards the floor, all the way to get into 2WD.
