Engine started fine. Now takes 5 to 8 tries (when warm, more when cold). Spins over good, tries to start but sputters and dies. When it does finally start, it idles at low rpms (@ 400) for about 5 or 6 second then idles up to normal rpms and runs fine until I shut it off. I can try to crank it immediately or wait 15 mins, it will do the same thing.

I have an 06 Dodge 5.9L that has a light white smoke and rough idle when first ... 2006Ram 2500 QCSB 4x4, 3" Carli coils w/ 1" Daystar spacer, ... Still ran good tho, dispite the exact conditions you describe on Cold Start up.
you have codes related to the pcm, transfer pump and a vehicle speed sensor. these could be related or all individual issues. related issued could be wiring, untill you start doing testing it will be hard to tell. start cheap and test the speed sensor first, then you can clear the codes and continue on any codes come back.
Disconnect the PCM harness connector(s). Disconnect the Vehicle Speed Sensor harness connector. Note: Check connectors - Clean/repair as necessary. Measure the resistance of the 5 Volt Supply circuit between the VSS harness connector and the PCM harness connector. Is the resistance above 5.0 ohms?
Sorry you are having trouble.
This is a major under job. You did not specify the engine size.
A manual will be a great help to you but I will tell you the basics
Remove the exhaust from the head (difficult)
Remove the intake manifold(difficult)
Remove everything else connected to the head(difficult)
Install new gasket (easy)
Put it all back together
I hope this helps
