I got a 99 jeep grand cherokee larado, when you first start driving the jeep shifts like a dream, but after a few shift cycles it starts shifting hard into 3rd. you can stop the jeep and turn off the engine for just a few moments then take off again, it shifts fine at first then after a few cycles it starts shifting hard again. any ideas?

Check you transmission fluid first. This transmission has gears 1-2 auto 3 and OD 4. If you are in 3rd and 4th and it is not recognizing it, it may be the linkage or you transmission needs to be serviced. This transmission and transfer case in this year jeep if bullet proof. It is a great setup. You shouldn't have this problem unless the service to the transmission has been neglected. Pleas don't forget to rate this solution for me.
A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.
Dirty transmission filter. Most "service" places only pump out the fluid through the dipstick tube and tell you that the filter will be OK. That way they don't get an ATF bath when they pull the pan. I'm guessing that the crud in your tranny is pluging the filter after a few miles, when you shut it off, the fluid runs back down, washing the dirt and metal pieces back into the pan.
Check fluid in transfer case, make sure it's full and clean. Lube all external linkage and make sure it's adjusted correctly. Chances are there's a bit of wear in t-case components. When this happens sometimes rolling shifts are easier on unit.
I had a shifting problem. The car would start in the wrong gear and shift at wrong times. I repaced the governor postion sensor and tranny fluid and the problem has been fixed for several years. Did you replace the tranny fluid?
