My daughter has a 2003 with the same problem. She took it to a highly regarded transmission shop. They told her it is not the transmisison but an engine performance problem. She took it for an oil change to check the filters etc and the fuel filter is bad. I will follow up if that fixes the problem.

discovered a service bulletin on my Jeep on "Alldata.com", which indicated "A/T - Throttle Position Sensor".I don't subscribe to the site, so I could only see this header. I thendid a search on Throttle Position Sensor and found a number of sitesthat described numerous transmission problems attributed to this sensor.I tookthe Jeep to a Chrysler dealer near me, and purchased the part for$69.00. I installed it myself, and the Jeep shifts beautifully, betterthan when I bought it.
A. The TSB you are refering to is number ATRATB324A, dated 1/1/1996 witrh the subject "A/T - AW4 Throttle Position Sensor (TP)".
TheTransmission Control Unit does, indeed, use an input, among others,from the TPS to determine shift times. So if there is a problem withthe TPS, it will effect transmission shifting. In fact, it is not allthat uncommon to see a TPS cause a transmission problem.
If the transmission works fine after the TPS is replaced then I would only recommend thata routine flush be done to it and perhaps treat it to a new filter.
