They probably had a problem with the front axle drive train and it was cheaper to remove the drive shaft than replace the broken parts. -- If you want to make it back into a 4WD, you will need to find out what parts are bad and repair/replace them. Both axles will have to have the same ratio's.

The most common thing I see is a CV axle fails so instead of replacing it they just take them out and leave the portion of it on that holds the wheel bearings together. At the same time they remove the front driveshaft. Some people think it will boost gas mileage but it isn't noticable.

Oh, totally forgot about the oil leak. Dont use stop leak additives, if they can clog up an open hole what could they clog inside the engine? Find where its coming from. Oil leaks down, find where it starts. Lots of things can leak oil. To be honest it sounds like you have been had by some cheap-skate
