The problem you describe is the signs of a failing automatic transmission. The transmission is slipping and needs some attention before it gets anyworse. I think your best bet is to get your transmission fluid flushed and replaced. If you don't know if it's been done then it probably hasn't and this could cure a lot of the problem. It's a cheaper solution then a full replacement if it works.

Is the check engine light on while the engine is running ?
If it is I would start there for clues.
If not, the list of possibilities is long.
You should check the fuel pressure and probably the throttle position sensor resistance. It could have a vac leak too.

When I push the gas pedal the RPM's rev really high and it takes a little time for the gear to catch.


The RPM's are revolutions per minute. So when you step on the gas, the RPM's should rev high. Not going into gear is a safety feature,

96 jeep cherokee 4.0 automatic has very high revs before shifting into next gear. once reaches 45 to 48 mph shifts into high. When you stop and start again it has high revs until reaching high gear each...


The condition you reported is either a control problem or "flaring" both are pressure related. I suggest you have a reliable trans shop test drive it. If it's a control problem (late shifting) there are external adjustments that can be made. If it is flaring, that is internal and may require a rebuild.
