Your difficulty shifting to/from 4wd and 2wd make be due to the bushings linking the manual shift lever and the transfer case. My 2002 bushings were shot!

I have a 2002 Ram 1500 4wd with the mechanical shift lever on the transmission hump. I'd suggest you read the owner's manual. That may sound obvious, but it has good info on the subject. Assuming...

I replaced mine at about 70K for very erratic shifting (like it was hunting for some non-existent gear, up/down while trying to drive). So far so good 84K now. Maybe it's the TPS you're buying. ...

I believe that the CEL will reset if there are no errors detected for "x" number of samples by the computer. I guess it's possible that small leak could "heal" itself at least for a short time.
