Newbie! I believe i trashed my transmission ;( 2006 cherokee 3.7 4x4 (awd)

Hi everyone, my name is jose from tucson az. jst joined a couple of days ago!
Im in need of some advice from you guys.
Long story short, i was camping outside town with the family and some friends, my cherokee had a injector leak which was real bad. At the moment i was freaking out because all the fuel on the engine and engine bay. It was getting dark and wanted to get home. Soo my friend and i pulled the jeep to the nearest gas station which was 6 miles. Came back the next day fixed the injectornleak but the transmission is not responding. Only now i know i cant pull an awd transmission. What should i do ? Anybody has seen this before ? Whats better jst replacing the transmission ? Repair it ?? maybe i trashed the transfer case too?
Thanks in advance! Flamee awayyy lol

Was the transmission acting weird at all before you left it overnight? If not, was the gas station in a bad area? Maybe someone messed with it.

Did you disengage the drive system with the lever next to the shift lever? That's what you're supposed to do when towing your Jeep.

As long as the transmission was in neutral , i can't see you doing any damage to that . Your transfer case output shaft is probably toast though .
You might have gotten away with towing it if you removed the front drive shaft ( the jeep will even roll with the transmission in park that way ) .
Guess you'll read the owners manual next time

no such thing on a 3.7/QT1 wk . single speed transfer case only .

How fast did you tow it. I drug my 08 about a mile last summer in desperation with the transmission in neutral and its find 15,000 miles later.

My transmission was on neutral the whole time. Also it wasnt acting upor anything at all before the incident.. My question is could it be the transfer case ? And not tthe transmission ? I really have t check it all out. How can i check that put the tc shaft

Pull the tc drain plug and see what comes out, clean fluid or chunks of metal
