Well, my transmission likes to slip majorly between 1st and 2nd gear. and if im just starting the car (like first thing in the morning), ill give it about a minute to warm up and then ill leave. well when...

After the engine reaches operating temp, on a flat level surface, check the fluid level in the transmission (running in park) If it's low, top it off. If it's full, chances are there is an internal seal that is allowing pressure loss, preventing the transmission clutches to fully engage. You could try changing the fluid and filter, adding lucas trans conditioner. That may help a bit but most times the only permanent cure is to rebuild/replace the unit. Don't expect "instant results" from the conditioner. often it takes a few days to took a long time for the seal to wear.

Will not start while on park after driving for ten

Your dealership can read the codes entered into your car's computer every time it malfunctions. Same problem as yours, however, also gets worse, back up lights won't work, sticks in park (in the gas stationing) (very embarrassing), will only run with foot on gas, etc. It was the "neutral safety switch". $500 fix but runs and starts perfectly all the time.

Shifting lever doesnt lock

Likely the shift detent mechanism is broken. It's inside the unit and can be reached by removing the trans pan. It should be just inside where the shift lever goes through the case.

96 grand jeep cherokee is jammed into park

the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.
