    No, that should not cause a problem.

    If the gasket doesn't have any rips, I'd reuse it.

    I don't know part numbers. There is another guy here, NumberDummy, who does know part numbers.

    The PCM does know when the transfer case is in 4 low. It changes the shift schedules to accommodate the lower ratio of 4 low. It does not prevent shifting when in 4 low, it will still shift all the way up to overdrive.

    If the pump or the torque converter failed you wouldn't have any gears. You can try changing the fluid, but it isn't going to help. You need to find out what the electrical problem is. It's possible that it is the alternator. It isn't possible that it is the VSS.

    Most often this problem is caused by a problem with the alternator. A bad alternator can still put out 13.5 volts, but have a large AC component. One way to make an alternator fail so that it does this is to remove the battery cables while the engine is running. That really screws up the alternator.

    The test to see if the alternator is the problem is to use an oscilloscope on the alternator output to see if it is a DC or AC voltage.

    The grinding when shifting into park indicates that the problem is inside the transfer case. The trans is probably fine. The electronic problems may be causing the transfer case problem.
