my suzuki escudo nomade engages gears when on 4 wheel but does not engage any gear on 2 wheel mode what must be the problem. It also jerks when i move it from park to any gear.

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The synchronizer inside the transfer case has teeth that are ground down on the 2WD selection causing the transfer case not to engage into 2WD. I recommend seeking out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you diagnose your transfer case issue.
