That's called flairing and is not a good thing (indicates pressure loss inside unit) If you haven't changed the fluid in a long time sometimes a fluid and filter change with an additive such as lucas conditioner may help. Generally though, there is no real chemical fix that replaces worn parts.Depending upon where and how worn your unit is, sometimes doing this will prolong use for many months. Or, it will have no effect at all. Sealing will not happen overnight it took a long time to get this way.If you need an immediate fix, have it rebuilt.

Check the Trans fluid level with it running and at operating temperature. Jeep NAG1 transmissions are known to have the input electric seal leak trans fluid. Not an exspensive fix add Mopar ATF4 and then relace the guild seal.

From your explainations your vehicle is due for a transmission filter kit and fluid change. Be sure to spray out the transmission very well after you drop the trans pan w/example you can use a couple cans of brake cleaner spray

as a quick remedy 1st check your fluid make sure is clean and leveled/adjust your kick down cable for early shifting by loosening the cable till you establish the right shifting

By your description solution #1 the transmission pressure switch is bad or not pluged in; did you have the computer scanned for the transmission code?
This is the first step, scanned the TCM (Transmission Control Module) to know fault codes stored there, with this clue could thnik in a second choice.
