Hi D, I suggest you take the vehicle and have a digital diagnostic scan carried out on the vehicle. The problem seems related to one of the speed sensors and the scan will identify which. Regards John

While stopped car rpm will rise sudden acceleration

I would check your idle, and to be sure not to press the acceleration pedal when you're stopped. You could try putting it in neutral while your stopped to try and help the acceleration go down. Hope this helps!?

Jeep will not shift till about 4500 rpm or if you stop too fats till will shut off  1994 jeep grand cherokee 5.2 fuel injected 

Follow cable from throttle linkage area to transmission. Check that where it attaches, to transmission, moves freely with gas pedal to floor & then released. Vehicle off, in park obviously. It may be a seized throttle valve linkage, just apply penetrating lube like WD-40, and try getting it to move farther & more free by hand, as well as with pedal until it returns all the way as it should. Let me know what you find.

Surging and not shifting

change the transmission filter sounds like its clogged up. replace w/ name brand high milage transmission fluid. should fix you right up. if you take it to a shop you can ask to have the bands adjusted also, that should give you another 5- 10,000 miles on trans. maybe more. good luck
