Sounds like the typical TCC warble noise, but that should only happen when the TCC is fully locked at very light throttle (light cruise). The TCC does not fully lock in MDS (ECO) mode, so you should...

I'm not sure which way is which position, but you should feel the same number of detents as shown on your shifter (probably four, like 2WD, 4WD HI, Neutral, and 4LO). Shift it with engine OFF.

Those are not transmission fault codes. Sounds like an engine problem. In 4th gear it takes more torque (from the engine) to maintain the same speed as in 3rd, so maybe your engine just has issues...

I have seen some complaints of trucks that will downshift from 8th to 7th (typically, when running with cruise on) and then never upshift back to 8th. In those cases, tapping the (+) ERS switch will...

Do you have the 6-speed or 8-speed trans? Do you know where the "weep" is coming from (what area of the case)?

That noise is probably the Brake/Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) solenoid, which is what locks the shift lever in Park when the brake is released. You will normally hear this solenoid clicking...

Avoid high torque / heavy throttle. If you need to accelerate while cruising, don't just stomp the throttle wide open. Manually downshift the trans, then use medium throttle to accelerate.

I still think you have a weak/burned OD clutch. But I was thinking it was in worse shape (blatantly slipping whenever OD was applied). Apparently your OD clutch will still hold OK at lower torque...
