The airplane taking off sound is most likely a hole or gap in your exhaust system. A few metal shavings are not a big problem. You should probably replace that oil to avoid wear but its common to find a few metal shavings in your gear box.
I had a similar problem for months with my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L. Mine used to take a long time to shift and usually wouldn't shift until speeds got up to about 50mph or so for about a mile and a half then would work good afterwards until I shut it off and allow it to sit for a few hours then I would have a repeat of the same problem. I was about to replace a relay in the tranny when someone suggested that I replace the fluid and filter. I took it to Quick lube shop and had the filter and fluid replaced. Still running like a charm going on five months now.
I have not had this particular transmission apart, but it sounds like that gear may be locked up.......??? may need to have it fixed. If jeep runs in all the other gears, I would definately believe that it is in the second gear only.
Go straight to your local transmission repair centre, they will be able to diagnose the fault and repair it for you. Also check your transmission oil, Engine running at normal working temp, in park (P) remove dipstick, on your left at the back towards the bulkhead. check level if low top up only half a litre at a time. if low put in half a litre of the correct fluid(available at your jeep dealer) put foot on the brake and put into reverse (R) then put into drive (D) put back into P and recheck if still low add another half litre and repeat process. When level is correct test drive, if all is ok, take to transmission shop to find the leak. repair and all will be well. Hope this helps.
Have you tryed turning on the ignition and waiting a few (15 to 20) seconds before starting?...If the fuel pressure is "bleeding off" when the car sits, it may take a couple of seconds for it to build back up to normal.
