Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
Noise is only in first gear on accelerating hard from stop, no noise when in 4wd, 4.0 6cyl automatic transmission. There is a slight feel of "slipping" or loss of power. Noise started after changing heater core- potentially from shifting the 4wd back and forth to remove center console??
Very Hard to say where a Clatter is coming from.
Do you have an Automatic or Manual Transmission?
Does it make a noise when you are turning and it stays in 4WD?

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.
