1990 Jeep Wrangler: When I depress the clutch petal with the engine running and the transmission in 1st, the jeep wants to move forward. I have to time the engine speed to shift from 3rd to 2nd and from...

Sounds like a leaking master or slave for the clutch that is not permitting full disengagement. If it only happens when cold it could also be caused by incorrect lube (too heavy) in the transmission, but that is unusual.
Make sure the fluid in the clutch master cylinder is full and that there is no visible seepage where the rod enters from the pedal and that there also is no seepage at the slave unit.

My transmission tries to shift down when i am speeding up and has a hard time doesnt shift up after third gear

Sounds like you have a problem with the governor pressure solenoid inside your transmission I use to work at a chrysler garage and we changed alot of these because if upshifting and downshifting problems the part is rather expensive and is usually accompanied by a full transmission service as the pan has to be dropped and the fluid drained, so people usually change the transmission filter when their doing this job and put new fluid in, remember ONLY USE ATF+4 fluid in your jeep if you use any other fluid you run the risk of transmission damage and shifting problems......

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I just replaced the transmission fluid in it and the filter as well, using the recommended fluid because the transmission was having a hard time going from 1st to 2nd...

They way you replaced fluid is bad, you should of done a bg service, by dropping the pan theres still oldoil ,the converter is full and the lines and the cooler and inside trany, then when new fluid is added the cleaners in it loosen all the dirt and seend it through the trany, the bg flushes 100% of the old fluid so no mixing of old contiminated and new oil is taking place.

Shifting hard when transmission gets warm

Change filter and fluid and also add Lucas Transmission Additive. Usually when fluids get worn in the transmission they will cause the shift to be firmer after warm up. ]
