Q: Q: Shifting problems

asked by on

I bought this car and drive it in 2wd for about a week just fine. Today I took it to the snow and put it into 4wd. When I left and tried to get it back into 2wd I noticed my truck is riding rough, like it's bouncing and when I hit the gas it tries to shift back into 4wd or neutral. It won't stay locked into 2wd.. I've read some articles and think it might be a transfer case issue but I have no idea please help

My car has 114000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
