Icon4 4WD issues please help!

my 1994 Ford Ranger XLT v6 4.0L 5 speed fwd has been having issues.

I purchased a new transfer case moter about 3 months ago, for the electronic shift between 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive. i bolted it on, and worked great until recently now when ever i shift into 4wd it works but when i switch it back into two wheel it seems to be stuck between 2 wheel and 4 wheel, if i go into reverse i can go 15 feet before the gears stop and lock the tires from moving but when i drive it grinds a lot

Is a synchronization issue with the transfer case motor or could it possibly be low on front differential fluid or is the transfer case itself low on fluid?

any and all ideas would be wonderful! thanks
