If the 4x4 lock up is working it will turn, what are the symptoms that make you think that the transfer is faulty?

They guy I got it from said the transfer case was bad and he unhooked the front drive axle and I had a friend look at my transfer case and he engaged the 4x4 with the drive line hooked in the case and it was turning but I was under it yesterday and with the engine off the drive line was moving with no problem and I was wandering if that would be a sign if it was bad

Hard engagement, noisy operation, jumping out of drive, check oil and test drive to see what you find.

If you have spark, and injector pulse, it will be a problem with the fuel system, either pressure or flow related.
